A quiz bowl veteran, Tajin says history "has never seemed dry or boring" to him. He is particularly interested in the military savvy of Hannibal, whom he sees as an "amazingly charismatic character." Tajin also enjoys flute, piano, soccer and taekwondo. He is interested in several other academic subjects, including math, science and engineering.
