Why did you choose Cornell?

I had a wide variety of interests and did not know what I wanted to study. I chose Cornell as I felt assured that I would find something that interested and challenged me. 

What is your main extracurricular activity and why is it important to you?

I am a member of a film organization, Delta Kappa Alpha. I enjoyed having a space to explore my interests with like-minded people.

What have you accomplished as a Cornell student that you are most proud of?

I completed an honors thesis in film. This had been the largest project I have taken on, but it has been satisfying and encouraging to see everything come together.
