The best part of asking Rachel to homecoming was her expression of pure ecstasy. Foothill High, a phone application I personally designed, supplied her with two choices – "screw you" and "I do."

Idea or experience important to intellectual development. Two summers ago, I attended a course in artificial intelligence at the Stanford Summer Institutes. Thrust into an environment with incredibly intelligent peers, I felt daunted at the prospect of learning course material at their swift pace.
