Second Year

I am a second year from San Francisco, California (although I grew up in Pamplona, in northern Spain). I am on the Mock Trial team, a singer in Motet Choir, a writer for the Undergraduate Law Magazine, and the founder of the UChicago Organization of LGBTQ+ Students. My favorite book is Jandy Nelson's I'll Give You the Sun, and my favorite song is currently Fitzpleasure by alt-J. In my down time, I love to cook and explore Chicago's food scene! Hit me up with food recs, music recs, and for advice about starting RSOs!

First Year 

Economics/Public Policy/Psychology

Hello everybody! I am from Canada, and aside from Peer Advising, I am on Undergraduate Student Government as a representative for the Class of 2026, serve on House Council, am involved with MUN as part of the team as well as the organizing committee, am on the fencing team, and host a podcast at the Maroon called The Gordian Knot where we ask international students to bring a first-hand perspective into the news, culture, and politics of their homes. My favourite movie is Everything Everywhere All at Once - not only was the representation excellent, but I thought the humour and hectic style really matches me. Not sure what else to say in this bio, but I'm happy to talk anytime!

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

If a woodchuck had the self awareness to reflect and plan upon the amount of wood they may or may not be willing to chuck, they would become conscious of the devasting enviromental effects of deforestation and adopt a moralistic opposition to chucking.
