I'm Aaron Tan, and I am a student, developer, and human being currently studying at the University of Waterloo.
When not in class, I enjoy exploring programming projects, playing piano, learning languages, and sometimes even flying gliders. I've been lucky to grow up in a world where breakthroughs and innovation are happening every day: and I want to be a part of that. Take a look at my resume!

The academically rigourous IB programme requires taking at least six IB courses, with (at least) two examinations each and one internally marked assessment, as well as community involvement and personal improvement through CAS (Creative, Active, Service) and a 4,000 word Extended Essay. Marked out of 45, I achieved a 43 (776, 776, A/A); this is the top 1% of worldwide IB students.
