Claim to fame: CC 2010 Valedictorian, Columbia University Dance Marathon (CUDM) 2010 Co-Overall Chair
Where are you going? National Institute of Health, Bethesda, MD
Three things you learned at Columbia:
1. The 1 train splits from the 2 and 3 trains at 96th street. (Learned during orientation week freshman year)
2. Beautiful, old classrooms and libraries are inspirational.
3. There is always an exception to the rule (be it Schrödinger’s equation or the housing lottery).
Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: Cynical answer: I was born and have survived 22 years of natural selection.
Not-so-cynical answer: I smile at people. Résumé-ish answer: CUDM: I dance to stop childhood HIV/AIDS.
Would you rather give up oral sex or cheese? I can’t win with this one.
Any advice for the Class of 2014? Change your mind as often as you wish.
Any regrets? Not finding the gluten-free refrigerator in John Jay until second semester freshman year.
