Tour Guide at Brandeis University
Class of 2022
Hometown: Seattle, WA
Secondary Major: East Asian Studies
Brandeis is a community of intensely passionate and academic people, but it's also a community of supportive and kind people. Students here will take rigorous classes and pursue their interests, but there's no cut-throat competition against each other. I can confidently say that everyone here (students, faculty, and staff) has my back, and we all help each other succeed.
Kindness Day! During Kindness Day, there are kindness-themed events all over campus like open mics and bingo nights, and you can make gifts and crafts for your friends or professors (My best friend and I painted rocks for each other our first year and still have them!). The highlight of Kindness Day is kindness cards, which are nice notes you can write for a friend, a professor, or a staff member that gets delivered to their mailbox!
Nipper Maher Park just off campus! I live off campus, so this is a fun place to hang out with friends or just sit and enjoy being outside that's only a block away from my apartment. When the weather is nice, my favorite place to study or read is on the baseball fields in the sun.
Co-conducting Top Score Orchestra. We play music from movies, TV shows, video games, and musicals, and I've conducted music from Hercules, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Pokemon!
