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.

Pathfinder Parenting - alternative to Helicopter Parenting
Increasing Risks and Encouraging Accomplishment to Build Confidence
Decreasing Comfort and Scheduling to Build Flexibility and Resiliency
Delaying Gratification and Decreasing Rewards to Build Patience and Work Ethic
Using Positive Peer Pressure to Build Motivation
