As a senior nearing the end of his fourth year at Kent, Jenson Choi ’19 describes his high school experience as a journey that has allowed him to discover his passions and develop a strong sense of social independence.

In his school-wide chapel talk last Tuesday, Choi spoke about several of his interests such as physics and juggling, noting with a grin he said: “some of you know me as Jenson the Juggler.”

Although it might be an unexpected skill, juggling is something that Choi has been actively developing since middle school, and has carried with him to Kent. Choi started The Juggling Club in his sophomore year, which aims to spread Choi’s love for juggling to other students at Kent.

More visibly than juggling, Choi is passionate about physics. “I’ve always been into the sciences,” says Choi when speaking about the inspiration for starting the Physics Club at Kent. “I know many people who dread physics. With [Physics Club] we tried to make physics more fun with experiments.”

Choi has continually expanded his passion and interests through his club. This winter, Choi announced a work-in-progress plan for a Physics Club outreach in the broader community of Kent. “We want to reach more of the Kent community,” he says. The club plans to run physics experiments with faculty children and people from the town of Kent, to achieve its mission in a larger area.

When asked about the people who inspire him at in our community, Choi responds immediately with “Tyson Phan.” Tyson Phan ’19, according to Choi, has had by far the greatest influence on Choi’s social adjustment to Kent. “Sometimes we get mad at each other,” Choi says, “but when I need help from him, he’s always there.”

Looking back at his four years at Kent, Choi notes that he feels much less anxious about how other people see him. This shift, he explains, captures how his perspective has changed at Kent: “Happiness comes from within.”
