Why did you become an Ambassador?
I became an ambassador because I want to help make our campus and community as safe as possible in regards to COVID-19. These are difficult times that call for unity, while also staying six feet apart! I have seen relatives of my own directly affected by this virus and I know how awful it can be to both the affected individual and his/her family. I want to try my best to make Cornellians feel protected and have everything they need to feel at ease.
What is your favorite socially distanced activity?
I love going to the Slope and watching the sunset with my friends, of course, with masks on! I also watch the stars and try to find constellations.
What are some of the ways you’re working to keep our campus community healthy and safe?
I volunteer by handing out free masks and hand sanitizer to Cornellians.
Why do you wear a mask?
I wear a mask to help stop the spread of COVID-19. I don’t want to see that test result come back positive! Nor do I want anyone else’s to.
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to everyone during this COVID-19 pandemic?
Although we are living in the midst of a pandemic, there are so many ways to distract yourself while maintaining socially distant and wearing masks in order to protect yourself and others.
