What was your favorite class and why?

I loved Austin Bunn's Screen and Story: Script Analysis because it was the first class that made me watch movies in a way that I will never be able to unsee the process of production for the film.

How have your beliefs or perspectives changed since you first arrived at Cornell? What have you discovered about yourself?

I have discovered that I have a tremendous amount of willpower that can be applied in the most stressful and challenging of situations.

If you were to offer advice to an incoming first year student, what would you say?


Be ready to adapt to new situations and new challenges, and be brave enough to stay exactly as and where you are. Knowing the difference between the two only comes with time and maturity.
