I first met Jad when we were both members of the College’s honor committee, and now I have the honor of being his friend. We sat down to chat about his theses, the great state of Ohio and the best bad joke he knows.

One in Two Thousand: Delsa Lopez ’21

I first met Delsa through Exploring the Arts during First Days. Everything about her – from her bold lipstick to her buoyant energy – had me thinking, “This is someone I want to get to know.” I sat down with her to talk about all things spooky, ranging from makeup to taxidermy.

One in Two Thousand: Rosie Sokoll ’22

Rosie is one of the wonderful frosh of Willy AB. She is always energetic and likes giving us Junior Advisors [JAs] piggyback rides, so I sat down with her to chat about that, Ancient Greek and Vines.

One in Two Thousand: Minh Tran ’19

I first met Minh during Windows on Williams my senior year of high school. At the time, he taught me what “lit” meant, a term that was still in its nascent stages in 2015.

One in Two Thousand: Sarah Sutton ’21

I first met Sarah at a crowded party at 71 Hoxsey, where we bonded after escaping through an open window. I caught up with her to discuss her success as a photographer, her Eloise at the Plaza childhood and her family of “witches” in this spooky edition of one in 2000.

One in Two Thousand: Aidan Dunkelberg ’22

When I first met Aidan during his audition for Frosh Revue, I was instantly struck by his zaniness and his relentlessly positive energy. Last week, I caught up with him about his life in Mississippi, his violin and mandolin skills and his interest in nude modeling.

One in Two Thousand: Neena Patel ’19

I met Neena during my first year when we realized that her mom and my uncle were good friends when they attended the College. Since then, we have bonded over masala chai, my inability to hike, her inability to eat raspberries and the word “covfefe.” This Saturday, over a mediocre sandwich lunch, we talked about her summer in Germany, love of dance, favorite snack and much more!

One in Two Thousand: Robbie Rock ’20

I first met Robbie through our mutual friend, Natalie Newton ’20, and I was thrilled to have met another tea aficionado. Upon parting ways from that first encounter, Robbie told me, “I’ll sacrifice a goat for you.” The rest is history.
