It is hard to pin down Eileen Gu. If you had asked the eighteen-year-old last year what’s next for her, she probably would have said, “Being a food connoisseur”. She loves food, she really does. But right now, the freestyle skier, multiple gold medallist, accomplished runner, and high-end fashion model would admit that she is really into particle physics (more about her favourite place to indulge in physics in question 8). There’s a lot going on in Eileen’s brain, and of the 100 projects she tackles, she excels in at least 99.
