Hello friends! My name is Aditya Pillai (a.k.a Adi) and I am a student at Moorestown High School in Southern New Jersey. As a rising senior, faced with the pressures of college applications and a rigorous course load, the one thing I sought this summer was an unbridled, free-thinking venture--where I could have some level of autonomy without the stresses of conventional schooling. Reading about the personalized experimentation and unique lab experience offered as a part of the TRIP Initiative, I knew that this program would be the perfect way to spend my summer!
Regarding myself, I am a slightly introverted person with a great affinity for Indian classical music, math, and the science. While these interests seem like those of your average academic, I assure you that I can be far more interesting in conversation. Furthermore, I used to be an avid runner for Track and Cross Country and I am a dedicated member of our school's Model UN and Science Fair clubs.
I am highly anticipating the rest of the course so that I can get to know more about my TRIP peers who have greatly impressed me thus far and to learn more from my inspiring mentors, whose efforts in developing this course I greatly appreciate!
