So I saw this English cutie in my seminar and I decided to interview him. This tall, dark and smashing British guy is from England, but moved to America when he was sixteen. He is a Cognitive Psychology and Public Health Policy major.


*Note: Just try imagining this interview in English accent, for the sake of accurately depicting James.
