I think I am.  I joined when I was in eighth grade, but now I'm a freshman.

    Hey Cool!
    I thought I was the only high schooler on the list (and an admitted lurker).
    I'm also a junior and also in NC.  I just observe mostly because I lack the
    extensive (or apparently extensive) linguistic background of many of the
    participants of this list.  I've had a number of languages...probably over a
    dozen, though only a few I've worked on extensively.

    As your body grows bigger...your mind grows's great to learn,
    'cause KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!!

 I put Kankonian together and introduced it for the Net to see while I was in
high school. I thought I had to be the youngest person in the conlang
directory's Net at the time (Kankonian was officially declared "has been
invented" in 1997). I spoke with David Dynes, creator of Merdian/Sulekhï, over
the mail; he turned out to still be in high school too. Maybe David Dynes is
still around and active on the Net, if not an actual member of this list. Well,
I guess I'm certainly not the youngest person in the online conlanging
community anymore.
