|Eduardo is among the co-founders of UBYC and a member of other organizations on campus such as Choose Life at Yale. Some of his favorite musical styles are flamenco guitar, Gregorian chant, and Indian classical music (he thanks the Yale Raga Society’s concerts for this). Although a group like UBYC implies outspokenness, his ideal free time activity is to retreat to the Trumbull library and read all day. He is above all very happy for the great friendships he has made at Yale.
|Bijan is originally from Green, Ohio, where neighborhoods are surrounded by cornfields and the most popular hangout is a gas station. Here at Yale, he is a member of the Conservative Party of the Yale Political Union and Choose Life at Yale. He is a fellow with the William F. Buckley, Jr. Program and writes guest columns on occasion for the Yale Daily News. His spare time is occupied surfing the Internet, reading, dozing, hanging out with his friends and suitemates, and composing verse in antiquated forms.
|Dashell is originally from Fairfax, Virginia, just outside the nation’s capital. Here at Yale, his favorite course has been the Directed Studies program; among others things, he enjoys daydreaming how he may dare disturb the universe.
|Isabel focuses her academic studies on the development of the West and the influence of ideas on its culture. Isabel is the president of Choose Life at Yale, captain of the Yale Cheerleading Team, the former Chairman of the Federalist Party, a chorister at the Episcopal Church at Yale, and a coach at St. Martin de Porres Middle School. Upon graduation, Isabel is considering three options, the combination and sequence of which are as of yet undetermined: embarking on a PhD in history or classics, acquiring a law degree, and/or accepting a commission as second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.
|Radhika was born and brought up in a town in eastern India, Ranchi, and attended high school in Delhi. Radhika is a Kashmiri Pandit—one of the Hindu natives of the land of Kashmir in India. She spent the last summer researching for the book she plans to write on her land and community. Here at Yale, she is the Treasurer of the Yale Political Union and a member of the Conservative Party. She likes to perform Kathak, an Indian classical dance, but spends most of her time listening to her favorite music and spending quality time with friends.
|Travis hails from Houston, and though he’ll always be a Texan, a part of his heart took up permanent residence in the Shire during his ninth year. He participates heavily in Yale’s Catholic community and the Yale Conservative Party, and recently joined Choose Life at Yale and the Yale Gilbert and Sullivan Society. In his spare time he skilllessly and enthusiastically puns, sings, and dances, and also engages in intellectual conversations after (and only after) he has strategically placed impressively ancient, thick, and dusty texts on the table in front of him.
|Courtney was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, where she attended Nardin Academy High School. A Yale freshman, she, though she relishes studying the Classics, particularly Latin. She has spent her last two summers working for NASA and the Hauptman Woodward Medical Research Institute. Courtney is a member of Choose Life at Yale and involves herself with the St. Thomas More community and the undergraduate organization, Yale Faith and Action. Her hobbies include reading, playing pick-up ultimate Frisbee games, and listening to music.
