On choosing a major:  

Public policy is a very crucial aspect in the world today. My major in policy management allows me to effectively analyze and create policy changes.

If I could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, it would be …

…  Muhammad Ali, Serena Williams and Lebron James. These athletes have transformed the way that people view an athlete, and they each have done that in a unique way.

On choosing Dickinson:    

The people on my visit at Dickinson separated themselves from the people at other colleges. Dickinson students are the best, and they have made my experience a great one.
