Olivia Sun (孫傲麗)
I am Olivia Sun, and I just graduated from Walt Whitman High School. My hobbies include drawing, painting, and reading. This fall I’ll be going to the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering where I may major in computer science or data science. My favorite classes in high school were: AP Psychology, AP Physics C: E&M + Mechanics, and Studio Art. I was the President of my school’s National Art Honors Society (a club dedicated to creating art for the community), the Awards & Fundraising Manager for my school’s robotics team, and I also dabbled in other activities, such as doing graphics for my school’s newspaper and magazines, helping my friend with his Engineering Society (which brought in engineers to speak at our school during lunches), and being the treasurer of the Chinese Club. I participated in an exchange program to South Korea during the spring break of my junior year. Senior year, a majority of my time was spent on robotics, and my team even went to world championships. During the summer, I usually participated in some college summer programs, as well as volunteering at CCACC’s Dragon Dance Team.
