My name’s Charley and I’m a junior at the Harker School. I spend my time dancing, doing homework, and being forced by my parents into college counseling meetings. (Fortunately, I was introduced to Pree through my college counselor.)
Because I’m a baby, my life’s story is pretty short. I went to a private preschool, grew up going to public school, and now I’m at another private school. This means my parent’s standards are realllllyyy high, but thankfully for me, my school offers so many classes that my parents want me to take (especially if they start with the letters AP). I took programming summer before sophomore year since computer science was a requirement and my mom forced me to take a different course since I didn’t get into to the AP Chemistry course. I was immediately intrigued by a little robot called Karel that we controlled using Java. I was so excited for what was to come. Then, we stopped using the robot and started creating larger and more logical Java projects. I was just about ready to give up since I realized I actually had to use more brain power. But, oddly enough, programming turned out to be one of my favorite classes of high school.
