Outside of the classroom, the National Honor Society student has been involved in a variety of sports. He participated in soccer during his freshman year, baseball during his sophomore year, and bowling during his junior year.

Also, during his four years at Becton Regional, Austin’s favorite class has been AP Biology with his favorite teacher Mr. DiDomenico. “Austin Kim has came out of shell this year. He has always been a pleasure to have in class,” stated Mr. DiDomenico.

The senior’s motivation to keep working hard has been his aspiration to succeed in the field of computer science. “I hope to one day develop a revolutionary software or technology that will impact the technology industry,” he said.   

In college, Austin would like to major in computer science and so far, has been accepted to Rutgers University-New Brunswick. A few other schools that he has applied to are Lehigh University, Tufts University, and Stevens Institute of Technology.
