2023 Academic/Personal Highlight

During this year, I have been able to quickly adjust to the high pace and large responsibility of university. Through help of the bi-weekly zoom meetings, I have also learned different ways to study and learn more effectively; because of these reasons I have been able to maintain a high average in my first semester. Personally through self-discipline I have been consistently going to the gym and slowly seeing results.
