This is Angela Zhang, a Californian student who just won $100,000 in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology. Her contribution to the competition?

Although it was a hell of a swimm... Nice weather here and friendly people. I think I am gonna stay here for a while. A local sheriff escorted me to my new home."
The mystery deepens, WINners...
