Name: Gabe Kalal
Major: Psychology and English
Hometown: Dekalb, IL
Activities/RSO’s/Teams: I’m on the Raas team, which is like a second family to me. I’m also a volunteer teacher for “Cascade” and am one of the proud RAs for Woodward House!
Favorite YouTube video: I’ve gotten through a lot of long days in the Reg with YouTube videos of cute animals (the slow loris, the honey badger), but my all-time favorite video has got to be “Jessica’s Daily Affirmation.” It’s so uplifting. [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR3rK0kZFkg]
Perfect meal: Joy Yee’s, a restaurant in Chinatown, serves the best Sesame Chicken I’ve ever had. I would be happy to eat it every day.
Dream career: I would love to be a school psychologist. I think I’d be really happy helping students get though high school and move onto adulthood. Secretly, though, I would also love be a lyricist.
Team Aniston or Team Jolie: I’d have to say Team Aniston. I’m not up-to-date on my celebrity gossip, but I am a loyal Friends fan.
Drink of choice: Jackfruit Bubble Tea.
Favorite thing to do in Chicago: A lot of my friends from home ended up at other schools in the city, so I really like going to visit them and exploring their neighborhoods in Chicago.
