What college/university are you attending and what made you choose it?

Harvard Law School

Langdell Hall, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA

Which program are you pursuing and what about the subject intrigues you most?

This term I am looking into the law of social change, specifically looking at changes in electoral law during the time of COVID-19. I am very interested in the intersection of legal analysis and movement.

What is a fun fact about you that few people know?

I have visited every Disney Park.

What is your favorite book/movie/song and why?

I really like the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie. It reminds me of my dadi (paternal grandmother) who first introduced me to them.

What is your current favorite streaming binge?

Currently blowing through Lost.

In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?

I really love watching teen dramas.

How are you practicing self-care during this difficult time?

I am allowing myself to nap as many days as possible. Work and leisure has blended a lot during remote working, so I need to make sure to carve out time for leisure, and I do that through naps.

How are you adjusting to remote life and what are your tips to stay motivated?

Buy a pair of blue light glasses and a selfie light. Gotta find your lighting, even on Zoom.

As a Point Scholar, what is your message to other LGBTQ students?

Your joy, your success, your pride is a revolution.
