Skills of a seasoned magician are not only limited to sleight of hand and card tricks. The true magic in the cards lies in the interaction and response.

William Cheng is a graduated senior at Cypress High School. Off the badminton court, he follows his passion for technology, computers, and, last but not least, magic tricks. Being an athletic and a magician, William believes that it's not the difficulty of your craft that defines you, but rather your passions and ethics that mold your personality.
