Dana is a twelve-year-old student with a love for math and science. She is especially interested in computer programming and structural engineering. In her spare time, she practices violin for her school orchestra and creates small structures called boomilevers for Science Olympiad. She is also working towards obtaining her black belt in Kung Fu. She enjoys walking to school in autumn and sketching anything that comes to mind. She feels that everything she has learned was possible because of the literature she has read, and she strongly believes that all children should have that same possibility.
