Fishbowl Forum participants(teenagers):
Christina Wang : I am a junior in High Technology High School in Lincroft, NJ. As a sophomore, I finished AP Calculus BC and became an AP scholar. Right now, I am the Assistant Editor for New Observer Weekly. In addition to my academic interest in STEM programs/competitions, I have volunteered for Key Club, Monmouth Park System, and PCE for many years. In summer of 2014, I volunteered to serve orphans in Shandong, China by teaching and playing with the kids in a welfare institute. I actively participated in Track & Field, and have been a key member for Holmdel Varsity Volleyball team. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing piano, and drawing and painting.
Stephanie Shen : Potentially being one of the youngest participants, I''m only a sophomore at Parsippany High School. I haven''t done anything super great yet, like getting into Harvard and graduating with a Ph.D in Biology. But I do have one major passion for photography. My work has been published in the April issue of Teen Ink Magazine, as well as being chosen for the cover of the September issue, and having being recognized in several other places, as well (currently trying to partner and collaborate with Weathered Signs and Brandy Signs). I''m the historian of my high school''s Key Club, where I get to extend my passion of photography to a club for servicing our community and world. Though a big lover of photography, I''m working hard to actually get into medical school to become either an eye doctor or anesthesiologist.
Annie Guo : I''m a sophomore at Livingston high school. I may not have the best grades, but I''ve always enjoyed learning. I am especially passionate about English and Psychology. I find literature, as well as human behavior to be very interesting. Also, I love public speaking. Something about it has just always excited me. It''s even better to give impromptu speeches, because I like to go with the flow as I''m talking. Sometimes, I end up surprising even myself. Besides public speaking, I enjoy playing volleyball. The court is my second home and it''s where I can go to swing at balls as an outside hitter and forget about anything that''s stressing me out in real life.
Dennis Wang - I''m a sophomore at Livingston High School. I''m part of the LEO club in my school which is a volunteer club, and the Inner Circles club which is basically the Literary Magazine. I also enjoy playing the piano and writing.
Casey Tang - I am 16 years old and a senior at Mountain Lakes High School. I''m planning on pursuing a career in art.
Emily Wang - I am a senior at Randolph High School. I am Vice President/Captain of my debate team at school, which has helped me learn to advocate for what I believe in. In the Asian-American community, I have been a volunteer at Morris Chinese Academy for four years, am a member of an Asian-American parent-youth communication group and am co-president of my school''s Asian Culture Club. I believe that culture is very important to our identities and together, with my debate experience and active role in the Asian community, I wish to share that love with others.
Maxwell Tang - I''m a freshman at Millburn High School. I''m currently in no clubs or sports but I will do swimming and track. I haven''t found any clubs to join yet. I enjoy animating and writing.
