Zhao Yuyang/ Yanxi Li
At present, I (Zhao Yuyang) am a senior high school student in China. I am studying in the senior one of Guangzhou Zhixin Middle School. When my mother was pregnant, she listened to Jay Chou's songs for me, which made me develop a strong interest in music since I was young. I began to learn the piano at the age of three, and it has been with me for the next 14 years. When I was in junior high school, I got distinction in USMCE(US Music Certification Exams) Grade 10 and ABRSM(Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) Grade 8, and won the first prize in the finals of the second Federal Piano Open (Asia-pacific Region). While learning piano, I pursue all-round development. I did well in school and was admitted to a key senior high school in Guangzhou. At the same time, I am proficient in C++ programming and have achieved excellent results in NOIP(National Olympiad in Informatics in Provinces), CSP(Certified Software Professional), and USACO（USA Computing Olympiad）
