What advice would you give new first-gen students?
I would say that college is all about experiences and first impressions. Come into college with an open mind, don't be afraid to try new things and say hi to the person next to you. You don't need to know what you are doing because other students around you aren't going to know either. Just know people are there to help you at every turn, you just need to ask.

Student Organizations, Clubs, or Athletic Teams you are a part of:
The Ithacan Ithakids

Are you fluent in any other languages?
Sri Lankan

What would you love to find at a yard sale?
Cute snow globes

If you could appear on any game show, which would you choose?
Wipeout

Favorite class you’ve taken at IC? (And why?)
Why Do We Travel because this is something I want to do when I have the money and time. I want to travel the world and experience the culture and eat the food and walk through their amazing architecture. I want to see everything and go everywhere.

Favorite Ithaca-area restaurant/coffee shop/food location:
The Ithaca Ale House
