Things that are very important to me:
Human Rights - I'm not as active about this now because of time, but when I was, I stood for issues affecting the LGBTQ community, women, people of color, veterans, problems in the Middle East, poverty...
Being a Good Person - I think before I speak. I avoid drama. I'm not afraid to apologize. I think of how what I say/do affects other people. I like sharing. I always appreciate what people do for me. I avoid talking negatively about people, and when I do I always feel like a jerk. I'm not afraid to give hugs to someone that needs one.
My life in code
I got into coding when I was 13 in 9th grade. I was playing games on my TI-83 calculator and wanted to figure out how it worked; I already had a habit of taking this apart to figure out they worked. I learned how to code in BASIC just by looking at the code for those games, and ended up making 2 of my own games and made flag animations on the calculator. I didn't think of it as a skill, I just thought it was a fun hobby.
Through my high school career, I taught myself how to use HTML, CSS, Adobe Creative Suite, and create web/graphic design. In my senior year, classmates and I joined InvenTeams, a program created by MIT. I built/programmed robots. I also made myspace pages.
