So um, it turns out that I was nominated for the Overachiever Award for Parajunkee's BBTC (Book Blogger Twitter Con)! Obviously you don't have to vote for me, and there are a lot of fabulous people on that list. I'm honored to be considered. ^.^ But this post is really for if you ARE on the fence and want to know why you should vote for me. So uh, I've... included a handy list below of my "qualifications"?
1) I'm a teen with three jobs. (Two full-time, one part-time)
3) I taught myself college-level computer science and designing. (Coding, graphic design, web design, branding, etc.)
4) Since I'm a teen, I, you know, kinda have to go to school full-time too.
5) I am #1 academically in my graduating class.
6) I've won national awards in chemistry, speech & debate, writing, music, etc.
7) I started my first business when I was 12, won a very major prize when I was 13 (not gonna say which prize, since that means revealing my alter ego's identity), and invested in my first stock market project when I was 14.
8) I play 6 instruments (piano, guitar, violin, clarinet, zither, and bagpipes).
9) I am pretty much fluent in 4 languages (Mandarin, English, French, Latin) and I'm learning German and Japanese.
10) I have this blog thingy.
11) I run a fansite.
12) My parents are really busy with work, so I basically do all the housework around the house and take care of my little brother.
13) I am an IB diploma student.
14) I have a "band".
15) I volunteer at the library, with the Obama Administration, and am a trendsetter at Paper Lantern Lit.
16) I'm in 10 clubs and I do some work with Habitat for Humanity (build houses for people who, for whatever reason, can't afford construction workers and such).
17) I'm in speech & debate, musical theatre, and choir.
^I think that's it? (LOL yeah I get about an hour of sleep a day. BRB dying.)
But I mean, honestly? None of that really matters. I'm really thankful that you guys just thought of me at all. It's a privilege to be nominated, and no matter what, I love you all. :) <333 I know I've been a bit absent lately (as you can see why... :P) but I promise promise I'll make more time for blogging as soon as this science fair thing is done.
Thank you so much, and keep on rockin'! \m/
