What is your favourite thing about the College?

It is impossible for me to choose any single aspect of my time with the College. From late nights studying with my friends in the lounge to the time when Professor MacIsaac tried to scare me (with the help of my classmates) when I was late for 2000, every day was both fun and intellectually challenging. The College of the Humanities is a home for so many of us and every experience that comes with being a member of this family has made me a better academic, a better leader, and a much more well-rounded person.

What will you miss the most?

The people. The faculty members of the College of the Humanities have been a blessing to work with and the opportunities that I have had to learn from them has been an amazing gift. Further, I met my best friends in 303 Paterson, and the thought of no longer sitting beside them in the same seats every Tuesday and Thursday morning truly leaves a hole in my heart. The College has been a second family to me for four years and I’ll be thankful for the experiences and the people for the rest of my life.

What is your favourite reading/book/text from the program?

There’s a three-way tie between Dante’s The Divine Comedy, Adam Smith’s The Theory of Moral Sentiments, and Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther.

What’s next for you?

I have been accepted to pursue my Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action at Sciences Po’s Paris School of International Affairs come August.
