Carter Y.

Student Interview Fellow at Brandeis University

Class of 2021

Hometown: Lexington, MA

Major: English

Secondary Major: East Asian Studies

Minor: Asian American Pacific Islander Studies

My favorite activity outside of class is...

Rock climbing with my friends in beautiful places!

My favorite Brandeis class/professor is...

the Introduction to Asian American Studies course that I took during my first semester at Brandeis. Growing up, I had not been taught anything about my own history in school so having the opportunity to learn about what forces brought my family to where we are today was a deeply moving experience.

My favorite place on campus, in Waltham or in Boston is...

Chinatown! There are so many wonderful little bakeries and restaurants to get baos, hot dog buns, and egg puff waffles. My personal recommendation is Ho Yuen Bakery!

My most memorable Brandeis experience?

In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, my club invited my favorite artist, Japanese Breakfast, to come perform in the Levin Ballroom! She played an amazing show, and getting to meet her was a highlight of my time here!

I'm passionate about...
