What are you involved in at Cornell?

I’m an avid member of the Running Club, which has been tremendous to explore the trails of Ithaca. I’m also involved with several policy-related groups including The Roosevelt Institute and the Cornell International Affairs Review.

Where is your favorite place to eat on campus?

Temple of Zeus - It’s always a good day when their serving the Ginger Yam soup. Bring your own bowl and you’ll feel hella earthy.

Favorite movie/TV show: My favorite show is the West Wing. It just represents how I want my government to function. My favorite movie is Good Will Hunting. Robin Williams just throws around revolutionary perspectives on life. Nuff said.

Things on your Cornell bucket list: Pitch a tent in Mann library and spend the night.

Best pick-up line: “If you had a twin, I would still choose you”

Favorite quote: “If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you'll never learn.” Ray Bradbury

Theme song: Little Talks, by Of Monsters and Men

Thanks Xavier, for making Cornell a crunchier place!
