JAIMIE (Age 15, Monta Vista High School)
Hey! My name is Jaimie Chan. I’m 15 years old and going into 10th grade at Monta Vista High School. I’ve been at Hongyun art for a little over 2 years. I enjoy playing soccer, which I was on Varsity and won Freshman of the League, and participating in my school’s business club,FBLA. I was a WEB leader at my middle school and that taught me communication skills, responsibility, but also how to have fun while being a mentor to younger kids. Last year I went on a student exchange program to Japan and had a lot of fun with my host family. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and watching movies.
Anoop (Age 15, Monta Vista High School)
Hello I am Anoop, a 15 year old student from Monta Vista high school! I am part of my school's Science Olympiad team, which is a team that competes with other teams in different events. Each event is about a branch of science. This was my first year, so it was all brand new to me. I was filled with emotions of nervousness and anxiety, but I quickly overcame these feelings after the first competition. I ended up get thing first place in one of my events, which brought a smile to my face. Other than Science Olympiad I am a T.A. at hongyun art as well as a T.A. at my Indian religion class. Teaching kids at both of these places is a fun way to balance out the hard parts of high school.
Eng (Age 14, Saratoga High School)
Hello, I am Eng, currently 14 years old, and an upcoming sophomore that goes to Saratoga High. I enjoy swimming and swim competitively, and I swim year round almost everyday(even in the summer at 6 AM). I also enjoy art and like to create things and engineer. In addition, I like science and I hope to pursue a science career in the future? Personally I like to express myself through art rather than through words. Also I like to play video games. I can't think of anything else write.

I love crafting (mainly card-making), lettering and typography, and playing badminton. Some awards I have recently won are the "Energized by Art” Utility Box Pilot Project and the Kennedy Middle School Eighth Grade Distinguished Student Award.
