If you were an animal, what would you be? Why?
I would be a red panda because who in their right mind wouldn’t want to be? They’re just such carefree creatures who exude joy and fun.

Favorite spot on campus and why?
Morrill Hall takes the cake because of the intimate, metaphysical relationship I have with museums. But I’ve actually started liking the library as I’ve used it more and more to go and study with friends.

If your live was a movie, what it the title and who would play you?
“Grandmother, please grab the steering wheel as my mother drives down to the Atlantic blue” (Atlantic Blue for short in promos), and I would be played by Yung Gravy because we’re twins.

Sasquatch—real or fake?
He better be fake, because if I catch him trust he will be dealt with. He literally turned my hometown into the Bigfoot Capitol of the United States.

What is one thing you were glad you brought when you went to college?
My own toilet paper, and a really good emotional support water bottle.

What piece of advice would you like to give incoming students?
Do not rush yourself! Take it one step at a time and don’t stress yourself out over the uncertainty of the future, which is a big statement from someone whose entire academic career has to happen successfully for med school. It prepares you to better deal with problems as they arise, which is an important skill to develop in any academic or career pathway.
