Usdan. People sometimes call me Usdan girl.

What do you think is Wesleyan’s hidden gem?

The Center for the Humanities building on Pearl Street—I love its design.

What has been your favourite experience so far at Wesleyan?

Walking back to my dorm at around 5pm (in the winter) and seeing Olin’s silhouette against the darkening blue sky. The color gradient was right out of Photoshop. It was so beautiful!

What has been your favourite class this semester?

The Political Theology class on Zionism. I love the readings. They’ve given me so much insight into Judaism, Jewish culture and the arguments for Israel’s existence. It’s a very, very small seminar (so far there are only 4 of us), but we have very lively, logical discussions. The class is helping me become the incisive thinker I want to be.

What would you say to people interested in applying to the Freeman Asian Scholarship?

1. Do your research (don’t be afraid to reach out)
2. Write about what you’re thoroughly interested in
3. Be yourself on paper and in person
