           SCHOLARSHIPS,
        HONORS & PRIZES
 
 
 
 
At ten years old, my twin sister and I both tested into college-level English, and we both tested beyond the first year of high school algebra.  The high school principal said that - at ten years old - we'd tested out of high school. 
 
That was 2007.  Since then, we've moved on to Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, Pre-calculus, college-level Statistics, and Calculus, earning along the way the highly-coveted Young Scholar Award from the University of Washington.
 
We're aiming for admission to highly selective colleges and universities, including Barnard and Smith (colleges for women), Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, USC, Cambridge and Oxford in English, Paris University, and the Sorbonne, among others.
 
Meanwhile we're striving for competitive academic scholarship awards, athletics awards, and awards in art and music to earn a place at these colleges.  Here's my college placement test scores I received earlier this year, when I was ten years old:
