If You wish to know something about me, well here it is.
I was born in Torrance, California on November 9 of 1988. I lived there til 1995 when my family moved to Santa Barbara, some 2 hours away from Los Angeles. I lived there until 2000 when we moved back to Torrance because of my father who works for Raytheon Co., an aerospace manufacture. Moving back and forh was hard for me because at first I didn't want to move away then didn't want to move back but in the end, that's life.
I attended high school at West Torrance High School where I graduated in 2007 as a regular student in my class with an average GPA of 3.5. West High is as diverse as any high school can be with all sorts of races, predomionantly of Asian decent and of about 3000 students making the student body. During that time I ran Cross Country and Track for 4 years as a distance runner and sprinter. I also did marching band as part of the drumline where I played snare drum, bass drum, marching cymbals, pit, but not quads. You can say I am sort of a percussionist than a drummer who knows how to play almost everything than just one drum.
During high school I applied to the University of Illinois, Baylor University, and Western Michigan University in search for a degree in aviation as a commerical pilot. I didn't get into either Illinois nor Baylor because my high school conselor forgot to send my high school transcript in timebut luckily got in at WMU where I got accepted.
Why you may ask why I would decide to attend Western Michigan when I come from California, well for one reason only, aviation. California is primarily a science school state with colleges like USC, UCLA, and Stanford where they excel in science and in California there isn't a school that have an aviation program like Western. So I decided to apply out of college hoping to try to be close to home like Arizona but ended up coming here to Michigan. I will honestly say if there was a school like Western Michigan in California, I would be there right now. It has been a big change for me living here and coming from Los Angeles where things were at a fast pace and warm always to here in Kalamazoo where things are at a smooth pace and cold. The only times it got down to 20s-30s was when I went up to the mountains in January when it was snowing, usually down in Los Angeles it was it typical 70s during the day and 50s at night. I can say during Christmas when here it's 20 some degrees or something I don't know while in Los Angeles it would be like 70 some degrees and some people would be at the beach relaxing. It was fun while it lasted and now I am really heading into a reality shock when snow starts falling and at first I'll be excited and in a few weeks I'll be like I hate snow.
