Major: Computer Science

Haiwen is a freshman who plans to major in computer science. This is her first year in SSO but she has been a member of both band and orchestra for nine years.
Why did you start playing flute?
I started playing the flute and piccolo ever since I went to a concert featuring the flute when I was a child. I love them both because they are the highest pitched instruments (especially the piccolo) so they are always audible in the orchestra.
What else besides music are you interested in?
I also really love to dance. I have been involved in both hip hop and ballet since I was young.
What is your favorite SSO Memory?
My favorite SSO memory was probably the retreat that we had at the beginning of the year. it was really fun to be able to interact with the orchestra outside of a rehearsal setting.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?
I would like to be able to control minds. If you can do that, then anything is possible.
