My English teacher was like, "Ok, we have a visitor today," and this man just walked in to our class. He had a name tag with the words "Visitor Calvin" on it. Our English teacher said, "This guy is a math genius. He works in San Francisco." We were interested to find out more about him, so he told us where he studied, which seemed vaguely familiar to me as I had been to his profile page before. Then, he told us, "I came back to Singapore to see my teachers. I will also be going to another school later, where I went for junior college. Also, I work at Brilliant.org". Immediately, those in my class who were active users of Brilliant couldn't believe their ears, and I asked, "Are you Calvin Lin, the Math Challenge Master?" Then, he said yes, and we asked him a few more questions. We wanted to take a photo with him but we had 51 English questions to do so we bade him farewell. After speaking to our teacher for a few more minutes, he left.

By the way, he doesn't really look like his profile picture. He wears black spectacles. Also, we asked him to say out the square root of 2 truncated to 100 digits but he didn't answer. He was like, "What..." XD Victor Loh · 3 years, 3 months ago

@Samuel Squigi Hi Charlton (whoever you might be) I would say that I won't really care if you don't believe me. I posted this because I wanted to share my experience with others. You can even ask my teacher (According to you, you said that you knew me well, so you should know my classmates and teachers). You can even ask Calvin yourself. Victor Loh · 3 years, 3 months ago
