Born in small town, interested in math, science, and literature. I go by Izi and I am a current student at Williams College Class of 2019. I'm a freshman at University of Rochester Class of 2020 interested in double majoring in Biology and Spanish, eventually applying to med school.
Attending Stanford University starting fall of 2016, planning on studying engineering or computer science, with a minor in a foreign language. I'm an incoming freshmen at Tulane University in New Orleans, where I'll be studying Architecture, with a coordinate major in International Development and a minor in Urban Studies. I hope to be a biology or sociology major with a neuroscience concentration. I'm passionate about studying science, doing research and learning new languages. I went to an American school in Hong Kong from K-12 and will be starting my freshman year at Fordham University at Lincoln Center in the fall.
