My name is Eileen Huang. I am 13-years old and I am currently in the eighth grade. Last year, I studied abroad in China for a semester. It was a very difficult yet interesting experience -- it was the best and worst thing that had ever happened to her. I feel like I have more life experience than my peers and I can now help them through their troubles. I''m looking for a high school that offers fun courses and can let me pursue what I love to do. I''m really interested in Humanities, especially Literature, because it provides more insight into human behavior which has always really intrigued me.
