My name is Sandor, and I am a freshman at Okemos High School. I am very meticulous and like to do things perfectly, which makes me a slow worker. However, I can also be very efficient when needed. Although I am usually quiet, I am active in class. I have a good memory and am a fast learner, making learning languages or memorizing music or drills for marching band easy for me. I am also good at math and science. I like to fly my Ember 2 remote control airplane and play percussion, Chinese chess (which I just learned about last summer in China), ping-pong, badminton and tennis. I love being in the school marching band, too.

Questions about myself:
What can I do to have more free time?
What would be the best job for me when I grow up?
How can I use my skills to make the world better?
Where will I go to college?
Will I work or live in foreign countries?
Questions about the world:
What will the world be like in twenty years?
What are the answers to the biggest questions of science?
What is it like to be in other dimensions?
How will climate change be dealt with?
What will people do when there is no oil left in the ground?
