    Jason Jong: Captain of OSB

    Post  sallychung on Wed Oct 07, 2009 10:54 am

    The thought of straining your brain to analyze a math problem usually makes a student cringe, but this physics Olympiad semifinalist’s passion for math and physics is worth all his strain. Senior Jason Jong is a dedicated member of multiple academic teams, which include Math Team, Ocean Science Bowl, (and probably Science Olympiad…tryouts are this week). Jason isn’t affected by senioritis, but is instead challenging himself with several AP courses such as AP Comparative Government as if 3 academic teams aren’t time-consuming enough. Jason is driven to achieve his goals because “having a passion for physics motivates [him]. It drives [him] to be the best at what [he] likes the most.” No matter how high Jason’s aspirations are, he works incredibly hard to achieve them. Jason spent countless hours studying in order to earn his spot as a physics Olympiad semifinalist.
    Jason also took a course on astrology at Pasadena Community College during 2nd semester of last year “just for fun,” but his discipline expands beyond just his hobbies. He strives to be the best he can in all subjects and challenges himself beyond his comfort zone. Jason finds motivation through his grades, and he specifically pushes to work harder with classes he isn’t too fond of like English. He is able to juggle all of his extra curricular activities while still maintaining more than a 4.0 GPA.
    Jason sacrifices hanging out with his friends to focus on his own aspirations and future since he plans to major in physics in the future. However, he doesn’t only excel in academics. When he finally does find time out of his packed schedule, he enjoys playing tennis with his friends. Jason also plays the piano and is a violinist in Orchestra 3.
    (I want to find out his goals for this year and how he plans to achieve them.)

    since this is the captain profile,talk more about him as the captain of the team and his goals and expections rather than him as an AHS student

    The thought of straining your brain to analyze a math problem usually makes a student cringe, but this physics Olympiad semifinalist’s passion for math and physics is worth all his strain (reword sentence. Too awk.) Senior Jason Jong is a dedicated member of multiple academic teams, which include (change “which include” to “including”) Math Team, Ocean Science Bowl, (and probably Science Olympiad…tryouts are this week). Jason isn’t affected by senioritis (change, it sounds like he has it, but it doesn’t affect him) ,but is instead (change to: but instead, he is) challenging himself with several AP courses such as AP Comparative Government (parenthesis) as if 3 academic teams aren’t time-consuming enough (parenthesis). Jason is driven to achieve his goals because “having a passion for physics motivates [him]. It drives [him] to be the best at what [he] likes the most.” No matter how high Jason’s aspirations are, he works incredibly hard to achieve them. Jason spent countless hours studying in order to earn his spot as a physics Olympiad semifinalist.
    Jason also took a course on astrology at Pasadena Community College during 2nd semester of last year “just for fun,” (comma after quotations) but his discipline expands beyond just his hobbies. He strives to be the best he can in all subjects and challenges himself beyond his comfort zone (its hard to challenge yourself while you’re in your comfort zone…). Jason finds motivation through his grades, and he specifically pushes to work harder with classes he isn’t too fond of like English (change “like” to “such as”). He is able to juggle all of his extra curricular (extracurricular is one word) activities while still (change or delete: still) maintaining more than a 4.0 GPA.
    Jason sacrifices hanging out with his friends to focus on his own aspirations and future since he plans to major in physics in the future (delete: in the future). However, he doesn’t only excel in academics. When he finally does find (change to: finds) time out of his packed schedule, he enjoys playing tennis with his friends.

    The mere thought of analyzing a tricky math problem makes most students cringe, but for Senior Jason Jong, calculating formulas is actually a main interest of his. This physics Olympiad semifinalist is the captain of Ocean Science Bowl (OSB). OSB consists of members who are willing to “sail the high seas in search of ocean knowlegde.” Jason keeps them all on the same current by constantly pushing them to work harder, which entails sacraficing Fridays afterschool and weekend breaks. Although all 11 members of OSB depend on Jason to lead them to the regional competition, he humbly states, “OSB has fostered in me a newfound passion for the oceans that I never saw at first from a physicist's perspective. It has also been an honor to work and lead some of the most interesting scientists on campus.” With the close connection that this team shares, Jason believes they can steer all the way to 1st place! In addition to leading one of the most unique teams on campus, Jason is also a dedicated member of the Math Team and Science Olympiad.

    While senioritis is slowly spreading across campus, Jason is challenging himself with several AP courses including AP Comparative Government and AP Literature. Surprisingly, history and English are his least favorite subjects so why did he choose to take these classes? Well, while students watch TV or play Nintendo Wii for relaxation, he takes science courses at Pasadena Community College “just for fun,” but his discipline to work expands beyond his hobbies. He strives to be the best he can in all subjects and challenges himself beyond his comfort zone. As a pianist and violinist in Orchestra 3, Jason doesn’t only excel academically, but is very well rounded. With all of these extracurricular activities consuming most of his time, Jason is still able to maintain more than a 4.0 GPA.

    This Apache sacrifices hanging out with his friends during school to focus on his own aspirations and future since he plans to major in physics. Jason is driven to achieve his goals because “having a passion for physics motivates [him]. It drives [him] to be the best at what [he] likes the most.” No matter how high his aspirations are, he works incredibly hard to achieve them. Jason spent countless hours studying in order to earn his spot as a physics Olympiad semifinalist, but he won’t stop there. Jason is always aiming higher and this year he strives to be a physics Olympiad finalist
