My name is Anya Smith-Roman; however, because of my obsession with the number pi, I spell my name with the pi symbol as the A, so many people call me Pinya. I don’t know exactly what I want to be when I grow up, and I never have, but that is okay because I am only 18. I do know that I love learning and problem solving, so I stay busy, and can’t wait to learn more as I now go off to Georgia Tech for college. I understand the beauty of not knowing your specific passion because that allows you to experience life with an open mind to all fields of learning and growing.
At my core I’m an innovator, so rather than writing a paragraph about who I am, I wanted to show who I am. This collage is compiled of: pictures of things that I do or think about, some of my favorite quotes from my one of my role models, Albert Einstein,(due to how he always spoke for what he believed in and I agree with a lot of his ideas), and comments made by some of my teachers and friends about words they would use to describe me.
This blog is simply to show my life, and to serve as a place for my day to day observations about the world around me.
I started this blog with the challenge of blogging for at least 100 days in a row the summer before my sophomore year of high school at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School. I have now exceeded that goal, but I have continued to post due to my new passion for writing to reflect and share stories.
As a disclaimer I’d like to point out that my writing pieces almost definitely won’t have perfect grammar and/or spelling. However, I’m okay with that because I typically write each post in under 2 hours since my purpose is just to keep up the habit of refining my thoughts from day to day- not to try and be a publisher; therefore, my posts have various degrees of professionalism to them.
It’s not just about where you end up, it’s about how you got there.
