I have acquired many various skills throughout the course of my 16 years, some through the process of public education, but many outside of this as well. However, I will only focus on those, at this moment, which, I feel, are the most relevant to college admissions. I can communicate rather proficiently in three languages: English, Spanish, and Chinese. I have also earned bilingual certification in Spanish and English. I have ventured beyond the expected cognitive level for a member of my age group numerous times, always attempting to challenge my mental capabilities to the furthest extent possible. I can learn new concepts rather easily and have been gifted, although ironically cursed, with what some may refer to as a "photographic" memory. It is my belief that intelligence does not exist solely a rigid, immobile form, but rather can be related, in a reasonable extent, to one's personal idea as to what level their intelligence may be. If the human mind is capable of understanding a concept, in given time, I will undoubtedly be able to understand that concept.
