One of the biggest things that defines who I am is my love for Harry Potter. This website, officially written by author JK Rowling herself, covers all of the little know facts in the Harry Potter universe. It opens to her compilation of all things Ravenclaw. I chose this particular section of the website because one of the things I pride myself on is my Hogwarts House. I define myself by these blues and silvers (bronze in the books), and I feel that if you read any part of the page, you can get to know me better as a person.
For the past 7 years, I have been an active participant of the Kids That Tri triathlon team. Every Sunday I swim , and then throughout the school week I bike and run. It has been the only activity to keep me healthy, and I get to meet a lot of great people through the program. You may have noticed that the image is of eNRG and not Kids That Tri. This year they changed their name to look more competitive and it was added to a business, making it no longer a non-profit. I liked the old team a lot better, but I will not rant about it in a school project. The link I chose takes you directly to their new website.
This website is about an escape room I did up in Steamboat Springs. I chose this link for two reasons. First, I enjoy puzzles of all sorts and escape rooms are some of the best. Second, my grandparents from my Mom's side live up there and are among the most important people to me: my family. Over the summer, around the Forth of July, my aunt, Karin, grandmother, Barb, mother, Donna, father Tom, and older sister, Melanie, and I went to the Crooked Key escape room. It was a lot of fun because I got to challenge my brain and I got to hang out with my loved ones.
As I said on the last link, family is very important to me. My grandfather up in Steamboat suffers from Parkinson's Disease, and it is hard to see him go through it. But one good thing has come out of it so far. In 5th grade, after being instructed to do a project, I found myself researching Parkinson's Disease. This sparked my interest. When I am older, I hope to become a Neuroscientist and to help lead the way to a cure for PD. I chose a link to the PDF because it not only demonstrates my care for my family, but my interest in the brain and all things else,
I have a strong allergy to nuts of all sorts (excluding peanuts and coconuts since those aren't technically nuts). Luckily, I have only ever gone into anaphylactic shock once in my life. I was at my first sports game ever and I had some Dip n' Dots from the vending machine. I hadn't had an issue with them prior, but I started feeling bad, and my throat begin to swell. I got to the medical area in time, but soon passed out. At the time, I don't remember being scared, but with what I know now, I should've been. I now carry my epi-pen everywhere with me, even though I stick out like a sour thumb.
The website shown takes you to the math section of Khan Academy. I chose this section of the popular learning website because math is my favorite subject (Sorry!!!). I enjoy it because it is so incredibly straight forward, with only one answer to every question. I was probably also influenced into enjoying it from a young age since both of my parents are accountants.I hope that my future job requires mathematical thinking and that I can progress as much with it as I possibly can.
I am a perfectionist at heart, with the brain of a high maintenance person. You mix those together and you get just about the group mate possible. Though I hope you will never have to use it, this link teaches you about how to deal with high maintenance souls. I wish you the dearest of luck with dealing with me for the next year. ; D
As you saw with the last link, I am already a picky perfectionist. Add procrastinator and you get yourself a challenged individual worker as well. Like I said, Good Luck. I chose the website above because I am frequently on Buzzfeed and because a good joke never hurt anyone.
