Fluent writer in 2 languages

March 15, 2000

Student achiever: Jingya Wang, 16.

School: River Hill High School.

Special achievement: Won a place in the expository writing tutorial of the Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth.

What she says about it: "It's really helpful. When I first started writing, I couldn't write anything -- it took me 30 minutes to write a letter. Also, it changed the way that I think. I think a lot more analytically."

What else she does with her time: Originally from China, Wang writes fluently in Chinese and English. "I was just invited to teach English to students in China this summer."
