Hi! My name is Isaac, and I am currently a Sophomore at SHC. My hobbies are swimming, reading, playing piano, working out, and watching YouTube. This year, I have some pretty hard classes like AP Computer Science Principles, AP Mandarin, AP Human Geography, Advanced Pre-Calculus, Chemistry Honors, and English Honors. My favorite subject right now is probably Chemistry, because not only is it easy, I also just find atoms and chemical reactions in general to be pretty interesting.

Right now I am currently learning Hikaru Nara by Goose House, which has one of the best melodies I have ever heard. Sometimes I like to volunteer at an organization called Mobilize Love to serve meals to disadvantaged communities in the Bay Area.

I found out about the i2 program while working on my application to SHC, as well as in some conversations between my family members about it once in a while. I’m really looking forward to the trips during the summer, because I’ve heard about them before, and it seems really fun to go with a […] Read more
This i2 project will focus on how vaccines came to be, work, and are made. It will also go over mRNA vaccines, the differences between it and traditional immunizers, and how it enabled the COVID-19 vaccine to be developed in an astonishing 11 months, obliterating any previous record.Project details
