Joshua graduated from Hawken Upper School as a member of the Class of 2022. He is grateful for his parents and teachers from both Birchwood and Hawken.
What are some Hawken highlights?
I got the opportunity to work on an animation project. That made me realize I wanted to learn how to draw better so I began to practice. I took time to analyze great art to try to determine why it was better than others. Then implemented what I learned into my own projects.
What are you most proud of?
I made the most of my opportunities to learn and grow. I looked for ways I could develop my skills and broaden my knowledge base.
How about your Hawken baseball season?
We made the playoffs – seeded in second place. I enjoyed playing baseball all four years of high school and will continue in college.
Where are you going to college?
Carnegie Mellon University. I am planning on majoring in engineering. I am looking forward to being around smart people, learning as much as I can, and collaborating and contributing on group projects.
What are you grateful for?
I am most thankful for my parents and teachers that really helped me learn.
I am thankful for Mrs. Tzeng at Birchwood as because of her classes I never had to worry about grammar or the basics of sentence or paragraph structure.
