As for the application process, Wang says, “The Park Scholarship, that was the only experience I’ve had with interviews, so it was really stressful, which is kind of why I didn’t think I would get it since I’ve never done interviews before.”

During highs Wang says she dedicated a lot of her time to various academic teams, tutoring her peers, and competing in piano competitions. She says she’ll miss those activities, but hopes to become just as involved in college.

For now, Wang hopes to leave her classmates with a simple, but always relevant message. Wang says, “Definitely choose stuff that you’re passionate in, that you want to get involved in, and be nice to everyone. You don’t want to make enemies in high school.”

Wang will be attending the NC State as a freshman this fall.
