I think everyone should read… anything that helps you understand the past and how humans came to be the way we are now. I’m particularly interested in 19th-century Russia and ancient cultures from Europe and the Middle East.

Outside of school, I most enjoy… sports and all sorts of media: I listen to music any free moment I have, and enjoy discovering new shows, books, comics, or movies. I’ve played hockey my whole life, and have studied Kumdo since moving to Korea.

I’m inspired by… anything that is strange, unique, or different.

I think everyone should read Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery and Life of Pi by Yann Martel. 


Outside of school, I most enjoy going to the movies, cycling, doing yoga, and eating at good restaurants. 


I’m inspired by people who take great risks to achieve social justice, stepping out of my comfort zone, optimism, and cooking shows!
