I am a freshman in high school. My model building interest started in the summer before my 8th grade year. I originally started by building only ships but branched out to tanks and aircraft. I have always been very interested in history, particularly 20th century conflict, but my best subject is actually math (I was the regional mathcounts competition champion in middle school) . A couple of my relatives served in WWII, Vietnam and multiple Ming dynasty wars (I’m a direct descendent of Emperor Zhu). Some other things I do: violin, tennis, speech and debate, HOSA club, World of Warships, Warthunder (nickname: themturtles) . Other activities I enjoy are traveling. My favorite destinations are: Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Germany and France.
