You sound like a perfect candidate!

I'd say that with that kind of background and interest, there should be
nothing that prevents you from becoming a very good Rockbox contributor and
gsoc student. I would suggest that you write up an application for the project
you think would be the most fun, challanging and perhaps most popular in the
Rockbox community and submit that. You can in fact submit more than one should
you want to offer us alternatives to pick from.

Oh, and please read this:

We will of course provide the mentors that will help guiding you in the mazes
of Rockbox soruce codes and architectures.
