What do I want to Study in College?

During my freshman year, I took classes in Photoshop, Web Page Programming, and Technology and Research. I learned to create graphics and code in HTML and Python to build websites and apps. In addition to this website, which I coded using HTML and a coding program called Sublime, I have also built my mom's website for her business using Wix.com. Check it out here!I have enjoyed applying my design skills to hockey-related fields! The image on the left is a graphic for my high-school team. I was also recently just appointed to create graphics for my NJ Colonials team's Instagram page, as well as design a logo for my coach's private business.

In addition to coding and computers, I have always had a love for math and critical-thinking fields. Whether it be Algebra, Statistics, Calculus, or even Physics, you can never find me far from my favorite subjects. I try to broaden my skills each year; in addition to regular math classes, I am currently taking AP Statistics during my junior year. My favorite part of class is creating model equations and diagrams for data and using those to make predictions. In college, I plan to double-major in Mathematics and Computer Science, and use this education to pursue my dream career of quantitative analysis.
