What is your most meaningful place on campus?

The most meaningful place for me on campus is definitely Red Square. It is the main point on campus that everyone crosses at least once a day and comes together. Furthermore it is where lots of the emotionally moving demonstrations and actions happen on campus. As an example, Amnesty International built a solitary confinement cell and put it in the middle of red square to demonstrate to the student body the overwhelmingly small size of an average cell.

What makes you a Clarkie?

What makes me a Clarkie is my overall weirdness and ability to accept other people for exactly who they are. Everyone at Clark is so unique in very different and amazing ways, and being able to be a part of that uniqueness and accept others for their quirks is what makes Clark such a wonderful place, and what allows me to take pride in identifying as a Clarkie.

What makes you feel most alive?

I feel most alive when I'm traveling and when I'm with my friends. As a Third Culture Kid/US Abroad student who grew up outside of the united states, traveling is something I have done all my life and gives me this excitement and sense of freedom that is hard to find anywhere else. Also, simply spending quality time with my friends just hanging out makes me so happy and energised.

What's your favorite class at Clark?

My favourite class at Clark was my Challenge Convention, Change our World class taught by President Angel. Not only was it extremely special to be taught by the president of the University, but it was also a very enlightening course about social entrepreneurship and social change, and how we as students and individuals can make a difference in the world.
