IAS 2017

“~Ideally, and this won’t be confirmed or denied for 25 days, but~ I would love to be accepted to Yale and study global affairs with an emphasis on human rights. I plan to pursue a doctorate in International Law and become part of the UN or CIA as a foreign ambassador/agent. Though I love screenwriting and cinematography, my favorite activity is, by far, urban exploration — essentially scouting out abandoned and decaying buildings/locations to photograph and rediscover. It’s really so interesting to see how the past can still be part of the present, hidden away in unsuccessful museums, long-since-closed underground subways and vacated grain elevators and lighthouses.”
