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.
