    Captain Profile: Vincent Li

    Post  christopherchen on Wed May 12, 2010 12:08 am

    Though analyzing the most complicated physics equations may stump the best of AHS, junior Vincent Li has no trouble at all tackling many of such problems. He has proven his worth in Physics in many a ways: Vincent, along with fellow junior Daniel Liem had founded the new academic team Physics Team from scratch. They had gone from teacher to teacher to organize the team. In the end, Vincent came up with 16 students who he trained and tested rigorously in anticipation for the Physics Bowl Qualifying Test Competition. Vincent had also qualified for the national Physics Olympiad Competition. Ranking the top twenty out of 4000 competitors, he may represent in the United States International Physics Team after the going to Washington D.C. this summer for Nationals. “I’m drawn to Physics for two reason,” stated Vincent. Physics is literally everywhere. Further, it’s the elegance of the solutions- after four hours of rigorous thinking, six sheets of scratch paper full of illegible equations extending in every direction, what I get is usually a simple, elegant ‘5mg’”.
    Not taking it easy at all in anticipation of his senior year, Vincent is challenging himself with several AP courses. In addition to balancing his class work, Vincent is very involved with his extracurricular activities. In addition to captaining Physics Team, he is part of Science Olympiad. In Science Olympiad, Vincent had also lead an event called It’s About Time. The event won first at State Competition, helping propel the team to fourth place. Juggling all of these things and keeping steady grades, Vincent is holding to his goals and pursues his dream in becoming a physicist.

    Though analyzing complicated physics equations may stump the best of AHS, junior Vincent Li has no trouble at all tackling many of these types of problems.

    Vincent has proven his worth in Physics in many a ways: he, along with fellow junior Daniel Liem had founded the new academic team Physics Team from scratch. They had spent much of their year going from teacher to teacher until they were finally authorized to create the team. By April, Vincent came up with 16 students who he trained and tested rigorously in anticipation for the Physics Bowl Qualifying Test Competition. Vincent himself had then qualified for the US Physics Team. Ranking the top twenty out of 4000 competitors, he may represent in the United States International Physics Team after the going to Washington D.C. this summer for Nationals. “I’m drawn to Physics for two reason,” stated Vincent. “Physics is literally everywhere. Furthermore, there is a certain elegance in the solutions- after four hours of rigorous thinking, six sheets of scratch paper full of illegible equations extending in every direction, what I get is usually a simple, elegant ‘5mg.’”

    Not taking it easy at all in anticipation of his senior year, Vincent is challenging himself with four AP courses and consistently getting A’s. However, among his academic achievements, Vincent is most proud of a more humble accomplishment. Since immigrating to the US near the beginning of high school, Vincent’s ease at Physics was only matched by his difficultly in English. But his persevered and in two years, he went from ELD to AP English, and had gotten a 235 on the PSAT. In addition to balancing his class work, Vincent is very involved with his extracurricular activities. In addition to captaining Physics Team, he is part of Science Olympiad. In Science Olympiad, Vincent had also lead an event called It’s About Time. The event won first at State Competition, helping propel the team to fourth place. Even fitting in time to run an hour each morning, Vincent truly personifies all aspect of a model student.

    Final: Captain Profile Vincent Li

    Post  christopherchen on Thu May 13, 2010 9:01 pm

    Though analyzing complicated physics equations may stump the best of AHS, junior Vincent Li has no trouble at all tackling many of these calculus and algebraic atrocities. Vincent reveals his dedication for his study in Physics in his effort to create AHS’ first ever Physics team. Vincent, along with junior Daniel Liem, founded the new Physics team on campus. They spent much of their year asking numerous teachers until they were finally permitted to create the team. By April, Vincent sort through the test of those who tried out and finally chose 16 students who he trained and tested rigorously in anticipation for the Physics Bowl Qualifying Test Competition. Vincent had then qualified for the US Physics Team. Ranking in the top twenty out of 4000 competitors, he may being representing all of America in the United States International Physics Team after going to Washington D.C. this summer for Nationals. “I’m drawn to Physics for two reasons,” stated Vincent. “Physics is literally everywhere. Furthermore, there is a certain elegance in the solutions- after four hours of rigorous thinking, six sheets of scratch paper full of illegible equations extending in every direction, what I get is usually a simple, elegant ‘5mg.’”
    Not taking any easy class to free up time for Physics and his team, Vincent is also challenging himself with four AP courses and consistently getting A’s. However, among his academic achievements, Vincent is most proud of a more humble accomplishment. Since immigrating to the US near the beginning of high school, Vincent’s ease in Physics was only matched by his difficulty in English. However, he persevered and got himself a 235 on the PSAT. Vincent studied hard and was push by his English teacher, who often teased him always to study his grammar and moved from ELD to AP English in only two years. Given that Vincent wasn’t also so talented in academics, he has always remained grateful for those who had help him so much along the road: prominently his English teacher Mrs. Judy Swift and his old Physics teacher Mr. Shenyang Zhang.
    In addition to balancing his class work, Vincent is also very involved in extracurricular activities. Along with captaining Physics Team, he is also an active member of Science Olympiad (SO). In SO, Vincent had lead a building event called It’s About Time. The event won first at State Competition, helping propel the team to fourth place. Even fitting in time to run an hour each morning and play sports in his free time, Vincent truly personifies all aspect of a model student.

    Though analyzing complicated physics equations may stump the best of AHS, junior Vincent Li has no trouble at all tackling many of these calculus and algebraic atrocities. Since when he was little, Vincent was “determined to literally wake up the tiny sleepy town [he] was born in.” This boisterous personally brought Vincent to his first personal encounter with Physics: “I swung a swing too high and flew off in a classic trajectory motion. The landing was a spectacular display of an inelastic collision, the loss of mechanical energy converted into memorable pain.”

By April, Vincent sorted through the test of those who tried out and finally chose 16 students who he trained and tested rigorously in anticipation for the Physics Bowl Qualifying Test Competition. The team spend at least three hours a week practicing and ended up getting second in state for the competition. Vincent had then individually qualified for the US Physics Team. Ranking in the top 20 out of 4000 competitors, he may be representing all of America in the United States International Physics Team after going to Washington D.C. this summer for Nationals. “I’m drawn to Physics for two reasons,” stated Vincent. “Physics is literally everywhere.
