Because you need to know a little more about us. We’re cool people, y’know, cooler than NYP’s computer lab and lounge.
Actually, we’re here because our introduction post (HIgh THERE.) was missing a few things, and we thought you might want to know a little more about us. So here’s a two question Q&A.
Q: Why are we called HigherThanYou?
A: HigherThanYou is actually somewhat based on our first story, which was about flying. We put a lot of thought into it, hoping it would be selected. It would be great if our team name had some relation to our story, but that’s clearly not the case.
The story that did get selected was actually the one we came up with in 5 minutes (oh, the irony), after a consultation session with Ms Hazel at school, and deciding to replace the second story with it. It was a math metaphor, but hey, at least our team name isn’t Pi-erThanYou. That would have been horrible.
Q: Why are we participating in NEmation 9?
A: Our teacher recommended us to join, and so we did.
We’ve made history by being the first team from Cedar to get into the Top 20 (22 this year), and then the Top 10. We’ve also had tons of fun and gained a lot of experience so far, so it’s not as bad as we thought. The sacrifice of our September holidays was worth it, and we can’t wait for Production to begin!
We haven’t forgotten about the blog post on the trips on Thursday and Friday, so do keep an eye out for that! 🙂
