Congratulations to both! While we'll miss them, we're excited for Milan and Steven to start the next chapter of their lives.

Steven: It's quiet and peaceful
Which genre of books do you like reading?
Milan: I read everything
Steven: Time travel books
Milan: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
Steven: Time for Andrew: A Ghost Story by Mary Downing Hahn
Milan: The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail-- but Some Don't by Nate Silver

Advice for high school students preparing for college
Milan: 1) Get to know a few teachers, they'll help with your application and writing recommendations. 2) Join clubs, even if you're not sure if you want to continue with them, because you never know what can become your new passion or hobby. 3) Figure out your learning method; in college teachers may not be so quick to help you learn.
Steven: Use a lot of checklists and try to get everything done. Do the best you can!
Planned course of study
Steven: Applied math
What are you most looking forward to in college?
Milan: Meeting new people, being able to figure out more about yourself.
Steven: Getting to study what's interesting to me, living on campus. It will be fun to meet new people.
Thanks, and good luck!
