What is a part of your identity that you discovered while at RU (passion for something, political beliefs, etc)?: Writing comedy and travel.

How has your Rutgers education or network help get you where you are today?: If I hadn’t met my freshman year roommate, I may have never gotten into comedy, as he was already doing it.
