Personal

Here you will learn a little bit about me!

Welcome to my webpage! If you do not know already, my name is David Wollensak and I am currently a student at the Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science. I was born during January in 1999 in the town of Newton, Massachusetts. My two best friends are my brothers Ryan (18 years old)and Jake (15 years old). We have lived in the small town of Hopedale, MA for the entirety of our lives, and we continue to love the small, close-knit community. Despite having lived in Hopedale for sixteen years, I do not always stay in town. My parents own a ski house in Vermont where we stay during weekends throughout the winter. In addition to visiting Vermont during the winter, I stay with my grandparents, who live on Cape Cod, during the summer. While on the Cape, my family and I visit the beach daily and engage in multiple waterfront activities like surfing and paddleboarding. Overall, my brothers and parents, as well as outdoor sports, are important to me.

This coming school year of 2015 and 2016 I will be a junior at Mass Academy. School has been a significant part of my life and I have always taken it seriously. From kindergarten up until my sophomore year in high school, I have been a student in the Hopedale Public Schools system. The reason that I am attending MAMS (Math Academy of Math and Science)is because I have a strong interest in the fields of math and science. I am also interested in English. Ever since I could remember I have been doing jigsaw and sodoku puzzles. I plan on going into the medical field as an adult because I want to help people.

Finally, running on my cross country and track teams is important to me. I have been running on these Hopedale running teams since seventh grade. In addition to running, I also participated in my sending school's ski racing team from grade seven through freshman year in high school. My greatest accomplishment in cross country was winning the Division II State Championship with the team in 2014. During that season, I lowered my personal record for a 5 kilometer race to 16:48. However, in track, my greatest accomplishment is coming in seventh place in the State Divisionals Championship in the two mile during the 2015 season. I plan on continuing my running career through college and competing on a national level. You can see my records here.
