What is your favorite movie? The Bee Movie 🐝 (save the bees but we take it to court)

What is your favorite song?

Luzon by Augustine, Manhattan by Keenan, Aam Betaala’ Feek by Nancy Ajram   (yes, all of them)

What is your favorite TV show to binge-watch? Killing Eve 

What is your favorite food? Chicken 65

What is your favorite slang word? DIY (Do It Yourself) 

What is your Senior Project idea?

Research for an academic paper on Systemic injustice under the guidance of Professor Hanson at Harvard Law School. To whoever is reading this, I recommend you read Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow”, one of the books my professor assigned which highlights the toxic cycle our justice system has been benevolently caught in for the past 50 years, such as the war on drugs. Systemic Justice is a detrimental concept that can be applied to everyday life and can impact others living in the margins of our society, whose emotional narratives can change our systems, whether it’s in courts, litigation, education, or even at home. 

What is your favorite Brashier memory? Socratic seminars, lunch in the library, and former seniors.

What are your future plans?

Go to a 4-yr, research in foreign policy, memorize the bee movie script, Women Delivers, meet like-minded people, and most likely law school idk yet.
