What activities are you involved in outside of academics?
I am not officially involved in any activities as of yet. But since I am quite an active person, I like to play a lot of sports including ultimate Frisbee, badminton, swimming, and soccer. Apart from studying, that is what I have been doing in my free time. Also, I am learning how to play the piano and I occasionally jam with friends on the guitar and sing.

What do you and your friends do in your free time?
In our free time, my friends and I like to relax. We like to go downtown to Java Johns, get some coffee and enjoy some good conversation. If not, we jam musically or go to the dance studio in CFA, put on some music and dance our stress away. We are also planning to go on hikes to  the beautiful wilderness surrounding us.

What’s your go-to line in the caf when you don’t like what’s in the main line?
I usually go to the gluten free line, because they have the best meat you could find at the café. If not, I would go to the salad bar and sometimes venture down to the pizza line as well.

What’s your favorite Luther tradition?
As of yet my favorite Luther tradition is the Luther song. I love how everyone gets so pumped up for the song.

What’s your favorite part about going to college at Luther?
I love how everyone is so friendly here. People will actually go out of their way to help if you really need it.

What do you want to do after you graduate from Luther?
I want to go back home in the Maldives where I want to go into politics.
