My name is David Friedenberg and I'm a rising senior from New Rochelle High School in New Rochelle, New York. From a very young age, I have had a passion for mathematics and the sciences. I'm always trying to learn new things. In the past few years, I have taught myself topics ranging from computer programming to multivariable calculus to theoretical physics. I'm also part of the Math Honor Society in my school and attend numerous hackathons (programming marathons). The people that I feel most indebted to are Albert Einstein, Leonhard Euler, Richard Feynman, Issac Newton, and Leonard Susskind for inspiring me to learn more and discover new things about the beauty of the world.
