Academic Resume

This webpage provides my academic resume.

My academic resume focuses on what I have done academically, but also includes information about my volunteer activities and extracurriculars.

Most crucially, micronational activities are not covered in detail and are added as another extracurricular activity. My micronational resume, which emphasizes my micronational activities and not my academics, are available here.

5. EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Club Participation: No other school that I had attended, other than Albuquerque Academy, has provided clubs. At Albuquerque Academy, I am currently a member of the Math Club and CyberChargers.

Micronationalism: Micronationalism is an important hobby for me, and I currently run a micronation, the Federated States of Gapla. It serves to build a country, but also to educate about government and connect from a diverse range of cultures. Gapla has over 300 members from over 20 countries, from Saudi Arabia to the United Kingdom to Chile.

Books and YouTube: I have written a few books self-published on Amazon about micronationalism and technology, one of which has grown to be a top book in the micronational field. In addition, I maintain a YouTube channel on technology that has grown to attain over 400 subscribers and 36,000 total video views.
