I'm super excited to interact with people with completely different ideas, opinions, and mindsets.

Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?

I think the encouragement Cornell and AAP give students to venture into classes other than those solely in AAP as invaluable. Drawing inspiration from manifold inspirations is something I find essential when expressing to the world.

What inspired you to become an artist?

I've always had a passion to create, and drawing is one of my favorite ways to exercise this. Guiding others to see the world with an open mind and to do so through what I love is important to me.

What are your extracurricular interests and how have you incorporated them into your college life?

Drawing, designing with Lego bricks, rowing and playing soccer, reading, pondering spacetime.

What do you hope to accomplish during your time at AAP and after graduation?

To grow my perception of the world. I'm super excited to interact with people with completely different ideas, opinions, and mindsets, and I can't wait to experience and learn about what I don't yet know to be excited about.
