Who am I?

I am currently a Junior at California High School. I love doing hackathons, travelling, playing video games, and collaborating with others! I work much better in a group of cooperative people than by myself, which I believe makes me a valuable team member. I look forward to working in a diverse array of software careers and learning new things! I have experience with multiple coding languages and libraries such as PHP, Python, C++, HTML, CSS, Javascript, Node.js, Flask, and SQL.
