Future Plans

Eric Chen will attend the University of Texas at Austin and major in computer science. He hopes to pursue a career in a good tech company or in academia.


Robotics and science fair were activities he enjoyed. "I was part of the robotics team where I was able to work with a large group of highly skilled, intelligent people. I also was part of LASER (Learning About Science and Engineering Research) and I participated in science fair."

Most Influential Teacher

Eric selected Ms. Sarah Gibson, AP biology as his most influential teacher. "Her enthusiastic personality brings light to the classroom and inspires me to be more cheerful. Her incredible optimism along with the challenging course made the class fun and enjoyable. This combination of factors motivates me to learn more about the world around me."

Advice to Students

"My advice would be to take every opportunity possible. There will always be more opportunities in the future, but the more you take now, the more you will have later. Also, don't procrastinate."
