Jongwan Kim

Class of 2018


Jongwan Kim is a rising senior at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJ) who is passionate about mathematics and computer science. As an avid math competitor, he qualified for the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) in 2018 and the American Invitational Mathematics Examination in both 2017 and 2018. Also, he actively competed in United States of America Computing Olympiad (USACO) this season as a Platinum-division competitor and consistently scored decently in every contest. He also participated and placed within top 5 in various university-held programming competitions, such as the Virginia Tech ACM ICPC High School Programming Contest and the Virginia Commonwealth University High School Programming Contest. At school, he is an active member of his school's varsity math team, representing his school at competitions such as the American Regional Mathematics League (ARML) and Carnegie Mellon Informatics and Mathematics Competition (CMIMC). He is also the co-captain of his school's senior computer team and the co-president of the korean culture club. Furthermore, he was also a part of the varsity indoor track team and the JV basketball team. He has taken rigorous courses offered at his school, including multivariable calculus, linear algebra, mobile/web development, parallel computing, artificial intelligence and AP Physics C. He is proficient in Java, C++, Python, C, HTML, MySQL, Javascript and LaTex. In his free time, he loves snowboarding during the winter, and playing basketball and soccer. One small interesting fact about Jongwan is that although he was born in South Korea, he mostly grew up in Japan, where he resided for 12 years, and moved to the United States in 2015.
