“It is about a search, too, for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”

My Story

What is one thing about your work that most people don't know?

I am currently a student in my freshman year at Rutgers University. People my age don't know this, but I feel extremely overwhelmed by the options I face. However, this overwhelming feeling is a blessing because it displays how much freedom I have. I want people to know that I am a student because I want to learn, make a difference, and get the most out of life, not just to make money and die.

What makes you most proud of the work you do?

When I do work, I pour myself into every aspect of it, taking out of it as much as I can. I currently advocate for animal rights through my school's vegetarian society. I take what I know from the classroom and try to best incorporate it into the activities I do outside because knowledge is power.
