Who am I?

On that note, what does it mean to be conscious, what makes myself....myself? Did my defining past even occur, or is it just a memory in the moment? What is the moment, what is time on a subjective basis? Is it an illusion? Is my life an illusion?

My name is Garyth Page Violette, I am currently a student at the Mass Academy of Math and Science. In addition to that, I live on a small fruit and vegetable farm in North Central Massachusetts. If I had to describe myself in three words, it would be curious, adventurous, and creative. I feel like these characteristics were fostered by the experiences I had growing up on a farm. The thing I value most about myself is my imagination, which allows me to solve complex problems. I find myself interested in a wide range of activities, this ranges from running to robotics. I am thrilled to partake in everything STEM related at Mass Academy. I am also excited to participate in the wide range of STEM extracurriculars, like FIRST Robotics, which will allow me to grow my knowledge from what I previously learned at my sending school.

I was born in January, 2005, to an amazing family. I currently have a fierce cat that roams my house, an older sister that escaped and now resides at Harvard, a father whose jokes are so bad your brain begins to shrivel, and of course the best mother ever.

I attended grades K-10 all the way from primary to high school in the Lunenburg Public School System. There, I began to develop an interest in learning, especially for science. In middle and high school I enjoyed partaking in Science Olympiad, where I won awards at the state competition in topics for different build and study events. In addition, I participated in track and cross country. Not only was/is running a competitive experience, but it also presented me with a lifelong interest that is important for both my physical and mental wellness.

My family's fruit and vegetable farm occupies 200 acres, has eleven greenhouses, and offers a wide selection of fruits and vegetables throughout the year. The farm started with a wheelbarrow and my grandfather several decades ago, and has transformed into a thriving operation. It has taught me so much, and deepened my connection with nature. I can tell you the name of almost any flowering annual or perennial, and distinguish any variety of apple.
