Hello, my name is Akash Mullick and I am an intern at Shodor. I am a freshman
at Duke University. I first attended Shodor for
the programming concepts workshop the summer before 8th grade. 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 that summer, I also
science, I love running and playing musical instruments.
Until middle school, I did not like to run. I had always thought
of running as a punishment, not as a sport. Once I started doing
cross country, I realized I loved running, and have done cross country
and track every year since then. I have been playing the piano since I was 8.
In middle school, I was part of my school band where I played the
clarinet for three years. Our band participated in the
Chapel Hill holiday parade, so I worked hard to learn and memorize
new pieces during the holidays. In high school, I am part of a
jazz band which performs in all sorts of places, including the Carrboro
music festival. I enjoy all of my classes
at school, but my favorite class is latin. Learning a new
language is fun, and everything is better with a great teacher.
I love animals, especially dogs. I have a 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, Spain, 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 did as an apprentice at Shodor.
Special thanks to Shodor
