Profile:

Jashun plays French horn in his school's band, which he thinks helps him stay focused. Because his goal is to be a neurosurgeon, Jashun names Dr. Ben Carson as his role model. He spends much of his free time listening to music and reading, and his favorite books are probably those in The Enemy series by Charlie Higson. Jashun is on his school's Mathcounts team, and he recently qualified for the state competition.
