About Me

I'm a 11-year-old resident of Irvine, California who loves mathematics. Let me tell you, I really like math. Calculations are really easy for me, but that's not it. I also get straight A's on all the other subjects like science, which is my second favorite subject, reading, music, social studies, and more. I'm a guy who wants to handle statistics when I grow up, or I could be a chemist. I am also eager for a great future. My name is Omar Mughal, and that's about me!
