Yoon Lee

Lakeside School – Bellevue, Washington
Class of 2023
Tier 2 Course: Computational Modeling – Cohort 2

My name is Yoon Lee, I am 16 years old, and I attend the Lakeside School in North Seattle. I play the viola, and have been playing a string instrument since I was six years old, and have been doing journalistic writing for my school newspaper since my freshman year. I have also taken up birdwatching since the beginning of the pandemic, and am now focusing on research writing on STEM topics with a focus on ornithology and environmental issues. I also enjoy reading, creative writing, watching movies, and checking out local arts events. Over the course of my high school career I took computer science courses up to the AP level, and was thus interested in seeing what I could learn from the Computational Modeling class. I learned the importance of holistic thinking, especially with how computational modeling could be used to comprehensively represent the complexities of real-world issues. This course taught me how to be more thoughtful and deliberate when applying my knowledge in computer science to systems sciences.
