Mr. Forrest is my favorite teacher. Whether in a Thayer van on our way to a Mathletes match or helping me understand impossible permutation and combination problems, he teaches with spirit and enthusiasm. Even when Mr. Forrest gives us a pop quiz, he does so in a way that makes light of the situation.
I plan to study Philosophy Politics and Economics (PPE) at the University of Pennsylvania. I am choosing this major mostly because I am unsure about my future. I know that I love government and work associated with it, and I also know that I love math. So, I combined my passions in this major that I feel was almost made for me.
“Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness.” This is a quote from the movie Pulp Fiction, and while this is a fictional quote based on a fictional Bible verse, it couldn’t speak more truth to me. I believe that people who help people less fortunate than themselves are truly special.
