in his own words…
“I do various things during the week other than school that can range from Boy Scouts to multiple engineering programs.
I am a member of an assortment of clubs in school, one of which is the Aerospace Club which is my own little project to bring together some bright minds in school to work on projects in the field. In Scouts I am currently a Den Chief or a mentor for Cub Scouts, and I am currently one of the oldest scouts in the troop. I am also currently working on my Eagle Scout rank. Out of everything I do one thing stands out from the rest and that is Taekwondo. All of the other activities are great and very meaningful, but Taekwondo does not add to the chaos of life. During a class it almost feels like a different state of mind or reality, due to meditation. Not only are we learning about remarkable techniques that preserve the cultures of the past, but we also get at least an hour to not worry about the static and noise of life. That may not seem like much, but having the constant worry of tomorrow’s activities or the onslaught of work can take some major tolls. That is why meditation is so valuable. It can help calm a mind. Meditation is one of the most important practices I do because not only can I do the things that make my life meaningful, but it keeps me from getting lost in the chaos of life.”
