What is your favorite place on campus?

I like to spend my time in Butler Library.

Favorite place in New York City?

Central Park. It offers lots of things to do: reading, jogging, or simply enjoying the view.

What is your story?

I’ve always wanted to live in New York City and explore the city since I was a kid. Being able to study at Columbia University is a dream come true for me. Moreover, I get the chance to meet wonderful people and have plenty of great experiences.

What is your superpower?

If I were to choose a superpower, I would want the ability to control time. I think time is one of the most powerful things in life.
