From an early age, I wanted to work in medicine because of my father’s influence. I am enrolled in a medical faculty, but I am also interested in programming and mathematics.

I came across competitive programming, where my strongest skill is, in my second year of junior high school. I became a silver medalist at the IOI and won the right to participate in the ICPC World Finals. I am studying diligently today as well.

In the future, I would like to work in an interdisciplinary manner connecting medicine, programming, and mathematics. I am also interested in entrepreneurship and business management, so I would like to gain experience in those areas, too.
