Hello, my name is Akash Mullick. I am currently a rising ninth
grader at Carrboro High School. I first attended Shodor for
the programming concepts workshop last summer. I loved it
so much that I participated in the Shodor Scholars program
later that summer. That was where I first met Dr. Panoff,
president and executive director of Shodor, and learned
about the Apprenticeship program. Over the summer, I also
science, I love reading and playing musical instruments.
Once I start reading a book, I won't stop until I finish it
or am dragged away. Whenever we have a reading
requirement for language arts, I complete it before the first
semester is over. I have been playing the piano since I was 8.
I'm part of my school band where I have been playing the
clarinet for three years. Our band participates in the
Chapel Hill holiday parade, so I work hard to learn and memorize
new pieces during the holidays. I enjoy all of my classes
at school, but my favorite class is latin. Learning a new
language is fun, and my latin teacher is great.
I love animals, especially dogs. I have a two year old Golden
Retriever who loves playing with me. He always greets me
when I come home from school, and asks me to play with him.
I also love to travel, and so far I have travelled with my
family to England, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Austria,
Germany, Canada, India, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Bahamas,
and Jamaica. I have also visited several National Parks in
the United States.
Feel free to check out my blog and portfolio to learn more
about what I do as an apprentice at Shodor.
Special thanks to Shodor
