I am a high school sophomore that takes deep interest in sciences and mathematics. To me, a math skill learned is nothing I will never use in life. Sometimes I feel limited to what math I can learn, so I take my free time to learn new math concepts. What do I use them for? Well, I play around with game development and physics quite a bit.
When I was about 6, I hooked up a computer for the first time. It was the first time in ages that the computer ran, and my parents told me with excitement in their voices, "Don't turn it off!" Unfortunately, I accidentally did. The computer never came back to life again.

However, when I was 9, I figured it out. I created my first email and came to realize that websites have to be paid. When I was 10, I found Google sites, created a site, and never used it.
Then, from my fascination with a gear toy, I searched Google for "Physics engines". I found two: ROBLOX and Algodoo. I used both, but ROBLOX was the one that allowed me to share my creations. This influenced me deeply. From there, I discovered the wonders of programming by a language ROBLOX uses for games called "Lua". Starting at 2010, when I was 10, I started to learn Lua. By 2013, I got a good understanding of how languages work. I became a director of a group of 20,000 people, which I contributed my programs to to aid in their influences they had on me.
I was also juggling this with school. In the 2013-2014 school year, I had my most organized school year so far. I utilized Google Drive and my computer to become highly organized with my work. Towards the end of the year, I collaborated with 3 other classmates to complete a group project. I led the group, where I established a system of stages for the project, responsibilities, and...
