Name: Adil Faqih
School/Year: Vanderbilt University '13
Hometown: I hail from the great city of Gahanna, OH. I usually say Columbus for people not from Ohio though.
Major: I am a Biomedical Engineering major and I am pre-med. Livin’ the life.
Relationship Status: I am currently single.
Celebrity Crush: Reese Witherspoon. Hands down, number one, no questions asked. Although after watching "Love Don’t Cost A Thing" earlier this week, Christina Milian is a close second.
Career Goal: I want to end up being a physician, potentially a surgeon. My friends hate hearing about how steady my hands are. And I think I’m going to end up in pediatrics working with kids.
Campus Activities: At Vanderbilt, I am currently the co-chair of Vandy Fanatics, I am on the Vanderbilt Programming Board Executive Committee, I am the co-president of Inter-American Health Alliance, and am on the Finances committee for Manna. More importantly, I love playing intramural soccer and sand volleyball. Those are more fun.
Favorite Music: I listen to everything. Whatever my roommates and friends play, I listen to. It’s pretty eclectic. Right now, my Pandora is a shuffle of Coldplay, Drake, Avicii, NeedtoBreathe, Jay-z, Kid Cudi, and Boyce Avenue. All over the place.
Favorite movie: Probably Remember the Titans. I love that movie. Left side!
What characteristics do you look for in a girl? I like girls that I can joke around with and just be a clown around. If the girl is an athlete, I’m basically sold. And I like a girl that looks good in sweatpants. I figure any girl can wear a dress, but a girl that knows how to make sweats look good…that’s harder to find.
Who is your role model in life? It's cliché but my mom. I love that woman more than she could ever know and really appreciate everything she has done for me. Five kids and she worked after having to leave Africa as a teenager by herself. Everything I do now is because of her.
What is the best thing about being a Commodore? I don't know that there really is one best thing. I go to an amazing school with great people in an awesome city. If I had to choose one, it’s the people. Intelligent, well-rounded, fun people. Oh, and tort Tuesdays are pretty good.
