David Zhu was born on October 28, 2000 Modesto. As a child, David always displayed a lot of potential and talent. He has a passion for music, which he conveys through his singing and piano playing. Currently, he is a junior at Modesto High School as a a full International Baccalaureate student. He always has straight A's and constantly strives to do his best. He participates in many extracurricular activities such as Cross Country, Track, Academic Decathlon, Science Olympiad, Math Superbowl, Choir, Chess Club (the best club on campus), Key Club, Link Crew, the talent show, and many more. He speaks Chinese, Spanish, and English fluently. While he may seem like another typical straight-A Asian kid that you always copy off of during a test, the truth is, David is full of heart. He loves to win and hates to lose. This guy isn't a quitter...at least when he doesn't want to be. Although he has a huge problem with procrastinating, David will always get the job done on time and often spectacularly. David is the kind of guy that you would rely on and be proud of. He has confidence in his abilities, peers, family, friends, and teachers, and he will never back away from a challenge. Basically, David is your guy. I mean, is there anything wrong with him? His greatest characteristic, many would argue, would be his passion. When he wants something, he really means it. His passion for music began in 5th grade when he first performed in front of an audience at his local piano studio. After that, he continued his music career and participated in several talent shows. He also joined choir in Jr. High and High School. He doesn't know what he wants to do in the future, but David has confidence that whatever is thrown upon him in his life, he will be ready for it. As a wise man once said, "David or Die."
