Double Major: Mathematics and Computer Science

Hometown: Born in Kuwait; spent some of childhood in the Philippines; hometown is Farmville, Va.

Why Arcadia: I came to Arcadia for the tight knit community, the chance to develop stronger connections with my professors and colleagues, as well as the opportunity to broaden my horizons.

Activities: A highlight of my time at Arcadia has to be the club meetings and my interactions with faculty. It’s been a collective experience that I look back on fondly. As someone who wants to try new things and step out of my comfort zone, being able to put myself out there and connect with friends and professors made every interaction memorable.
