Biography: I am a freshman at MIT, son of a farmer and a elementary school teacher in the small, mostly rural, municipality of San Ignacio, El Salvador.
I participated in the International Mathematical Olympiads of 2015, 2016 and 2017 as a contestant, earning the second bronze medal in history for El Salvador on this competition. I also earned other three bronze medals in regional competitions, and was given the opportunity to be a instructor of the Olympic group after I finished my career as a contestant; Where I earned more opportunities based on my effort and merits within the academy, among which I can mention: scoring jury in Honduran and Salvadorian Math Olympiads, grade chief designer in the Salvadoran National Math Olympiad in 2018, trainer of the National Mathematics Olympic group, trainer at Central American Math camps on 2016 and 2017, and Deputy Leader of El Salvador in the IMO 2018.
