Hello! My name is Faith Pan, and I am currently a sophomore at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory. It has been a wonderful experience here at SHC. Within SHC, I participate in a number of clubs, including Mandarin Club, Sports Medicine, TEDx, Badminton, Student Launch Initiative, Debate, and the Asian American Student Union. Throughout these years, I have successfully discovered a calling for being curious, learning, and leading as a result of trying on different “hats”. Currently, I hold leadership positions in Badminton Club, AASU, and SLI.
Growing up, science, has been an striving passion for me. Since I was a child, I just knew that I wanted follow my parents’ footsteps and be involved with the medical field. I told them this, so before high school, they aided me in preparing by sending me to KUMON Math and STEM classes. They would also often share interesting stories and knowledge with us (my brothers and I) about their experiences, which ultimately strengthened my interest in medicine. I am extremely grateful to my parents and love them dearly. Recently, I participated in an internship with OFA and learned html and css. Although it didn’t have much to do with medicine, it still sparked an interest in computer science and engineering. But continuing on with my studies, I have discovered that AP Psychology is super interesting! (I would definitely recommend looking into psychology.) I have also been following through with my goal by trying to organize my schedule to take STEM more classes.
Outside of school, I also have many other interests and passions. Being not as athletic, I engage myself in golf, badminton, and skiing. For the arts, I believe that it is not only an elective or hobby to enjoy, but also a skill that takes hard work, dedication, commitment to master. Having studied at Artworks for 6 years now, I have learned a lot about the visual arts. I also play the piano, and I am currently preparing for a test. Some of my other interests include practicing calligraphy, researching, and reading. (I also just spend a lot of my free time with my little brothers and family.)
I hope to make the most of my four years here at SHC as a member of the i2 program through being curious and discovering new interests to better help the world! Thank you for reading my bio!
Ou project is named Bacteria Cafeteria and this is a project focused on testing the amount of bacteria that accumulates on different types of masks over different periods of time. So far, Izzy and I have successfully finished transferring the bacteria and completing the experiment for 7 out of 9 masks. We still have the […] Read more
The first time I heard about the i2 program was when I was researching about SHC. When I first heard about the program, I was instantly interested in the different projects that were made by the members. Looking at the website, I saw that there would be different trips, experiences, and different things to learn […] Read more
Bacteria Cafeteria is a project focused on testing how much bacteria accumulates on different types of masks over different periods of time. Through these experiments, we will be able to decipher the most suitable material and time to clean or dispose of your mask.Project details
