Wu will attend Yale to study biology and music. She has earned high scholastic marks, becoming principal cellist with the San Diego Youth Symphony and earned three invitations to Carnegie Hall. She also formed a piano trio with friends, which performed many hours at public libraries and senior care homes throughout the county. She has won numerous awards for her music and her service to the community. Her social science teacher calls her a “renaissance woman” – intelligent, creative, one who excels in all areas including music, art and science, humble with an innate desire to learn new things and above all a good person.
