What is your major/what are you studying? I am currently majoring in Computer Science.

What clubs or activities are you involved in on campus? I am in the Student Senate. It is such a pleasure and honor to serve as the Executive Board’s Secretary. In the future, I plan to join other clubs as well.

What is your favorite place on campus and why? I have two places I really like. One is Galileo’s Pavilion – the green wall is amazing and I love the fact that it is an environmental sustainability project. I also like the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art because they have an amazing art collection.

What is your favorite movie and why? I don’t have a specific movie I like, but I definitely enjoy watching horror films and comedy.

If you could be any flavor of ice cream, what would you be and why? I want to be all the flavors. I have such a sweet tooth and I can’t pick one. Each will represent something.

What are you currently binge watching on Netflix? I am currently obsessed with Greenleaf.

If you could meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? I would love to meet Cleopatra VII, just because she’s so fascinating to me.
