Hometown: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

What is your College Scholar project?
I plan to study the relationship between art and politics. I want to approach this intersection using tools of historical, theoretical and textual analysis.

What are your most important extra-curricular activities?
I work at the beautiful Johnson Museum of Art, organize with Climate Justice Cornell, and volunteer at Recycle Ithaca's Bicycles downtown whenever possible.

Talk about any summer internships or programs you’ve attended?
I tend to spend my summers as far away from civilization as I can. This impulse has taken me to the Adirondacks, the southwest, Alaska, and even the remote subarctic parts of Quebec. I have not found many internships in these wild places, but I'm still looking. 

What do you dream of doing after graduation?
I have a lot of different interests, but I know I want to be doing something creative. Some weeks that means animation, other weeks it means writing, other weeks I'm petitioning stone carvers to let me be their apprentice!
