# 1000!

Just now, I reached 1000 followers. This is amazing for me. I'd like to take a moment to thank a couple people.

Thanks to Calvin, Sue, Silas, Aaron, Daniel, and the rest of the Brilliant team for creating and developing this awesome site to learn and practice math. I've been on it for a year, and it's gotten progressively better. Also, thanks for making me a person to follow for Computer Science. I'm really honored, considering I didn't know a single command of any programming language six months ago. Thanks to Bob Krueger for getting me started, showing me how to write a for loop, which got me started on Python.

Thanks to Pi Han Goh, Daniel Chiu, Michael Tang, and a bunch of other people for continuing to inspire me to get better at math. I probably wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't seen some of the things they know and been inspired to learn them. They are definitely people that everyone should follow to learn new things about math.

Nishant Sharma was my 1000th follower. Thanks to him for following, and thanks to everyone else who has followed me. And thanks to everyone yet to come.

A message for the people who are trying to get followed themselves: keep trying to submit good problems. If you keep trying, the Best of feeds will share them. Learn LaTeX. Make your stuff look nice. But most importantly, try hard to get better at math! If you have the desire to learn, you will be able to figure out anything.

Yep, it's amazing how I have 1200 followers now. And to think that a few months ago, I was just a regular old kid who uses Brilliant.org... Nobody knew of my existence.

I currently have 1286 followers. I don't know if you have seen the list that Pi Han Goh made, but I believe that is everyone else that has 1000 followers. Excluding some staff, apparently.
