I am Sparsh Agrawal. I go to Acadia Junior High in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I am interested in mathematics and finance. I want to attend Harvard Business School when I'm older, and want to manage my own hedge fund. One of my biggest passions is hockey. I'm a big Sidney Crosby fan and have the Pittsburgh Penguins penciled in as the Stanley Cup champions once again. Something else is table tennis, which I love to play. In fact I've also represented the province of Manitoba in this sport. While watching hockey games I hear a lot about analytics. Experts using analytics to predict how a player will do, or which team will win using pure numbers. Then I wondered if this can be transferred somewhere else, and I thought of using analytics to forecast future stock performance. If I had to give advice to other students thinking of completing a project I would recommend exploring something they're really interested in.
