Deciding to skip high school was the best decision I ever made! I graduated this May (2003) with a BS in biology (a year ahead of schedule), at age 16. I am listed on the National Dean's List, 2002, and have received numerous academic scholarships and awards, in addition to achievement awards in dance. Throughout my college experience, I have encountered multiple age-related legal and financial obstacles. Due to this experience, I have developed a passion for fixing educational injustices in the American Legal and Educational Systems. However, my main attention has shifted to the arts. I've shifted career paths from biology to professional dancing and dance teaching. I hope to start a non-profit dance company and school to help children in need receive arts training, and to keep the arts alive in America. ... And, of Course, World Peace!
