Katharine lives in Beijing where she studies not only English, but also German and French. Though she does enjoy a round of tennis, she says that, generally, she fails at sports. She’s much more comfortable playing the piano or otherwise participating in music. At home, she has two hamsters, Stardust and Bubbles. For every spelling bee, Katharine dons the same dark blue shirt for good luck. Katharine competed in the 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee.
