I am a 13 year old homeschooler in eighth grade, I started homeschooling in fifth grade. I enjoy learning and someday hope to become a neurologist, someone who studies the brain. The quote by Emerson Pugh explains why I think the brain is so interesting, “If the brain was so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn’t.” If the brain were so simple what would we be? What would the world be? The brain intrigues me so I hope to become a professional neurologist.
From sometimes as early as 2:30 in the afternoon to as late as 9:15 at night, I study ballet at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. I love the mental and physical challenge of consistency that I have to beat everyday to perform each move correctly. I believe that if ballet were easy everyone would do it, but it is not and I accept the challenge.
