What’s your favorite class at Xavier and why?
That is difficult as I have many different subjects that peak my interest. Being a student of medicine, I love the hard science classes where I get to learn about the natural world and the various substance that are found in it. But I also love learning about different schools of thought in my Philosophy classes as those to try to explain the fundamental nature of reality.
What’s something on your bucket list?
I’d like to spend an afternoon having a private conversation with the Dalai Lama about altruism, meaning, and understanding how to live in the cross-cultural world that is rapidly developing around us.
Where are you could you most likely be found on campus?
The Learning Assistance Center in the CLC, vending machine room in Cohen enjoying a vanilla latté between classes, or the Center for Diversity and Inclusion.
What’s your dream job?
I’d like to work as either biomedical researcher for the World Health Organization or work with Nurses Without Borders.
Where is your favorite place to go in Cincinnati?
Being down by the river on either side. Eden Park has particularly good vantage points.
If you had to sum yourself up in a quote, what would it be?
“I am a lover of truth, a worshipper of freedom, a celebrant at the altar of language and purity and tolerance.” – Stephen Fry
