Amelia Grimm Blauw

Mathematica Summer Camp

Class of 2012


Amelia is from the suburbs of Chicago and will be a senior in high school this fall. She likes figure skating, travel, and learning Chinese. With luck, she will go on to finish a season of 24 in just a day's time, which remains her (as yet) unfulfilled goal.
