Lindsay Wright, Del Norte High School Ambassador
Lindsay is a sophomore at Del Norte High School in San Diego, CA. From a very young age, she has wanted to work for NASA and become an astronaut. As a fifth grader she competed in the Elementary School Science Field Day and made it to the top twenty students for an event. She continued this trend in her middle school years in the Science Olympiad competition. As an eighth grader, she won two 7th place and one 1st place medal at the Regional level and a 5th place and two 2nd place medals at various State events - one of which had no coach. During the same year she made it to the Honor Roll for the AMC 8. She also instituted the first AMC 10 test her school had had in years, with students scoring up to an 81 out of 150. As a seventh grader she took the school's Gateway to Technology elective course, which involves various types of engineering. She was one of four girls in the forty-student course, and left the course at the top of her class. At the present she plans to join her new school's Science Olympiad team and study with the San Diego Math Circle. She has studied two year's worth of Spanish, is taking Chinese for her foreign language, and on occasion dabbles in Latin. When she has free time, Lindsay plays her violin, reads books, makes up stories with her friends (some more comical and bizarre than others), and spends time with her family.
