My name is Jordan. I attend high school in Maryland. My favorite subject is chemistry, which I would like to study in college along with mathematics. I participate in various extracurricular activities such as running cross-country and track, volunteering at the firehouse, serving as the president of the club I started, and working at the commissary. I like how natural science is used to pursue the unknown art in life. Although some items can’t be explained, science gives us some factual background of the world. I would love to gain as much knowledge as possible from the YES! program about how to apply science in everyday activities. Most people don’t know that I am a vegetarian and have been for four years.
