From the Lions Mouth: 
“The World Leaders Forum has been one of the most exciting parts about being a Columbia student. I once heard Attorney General Eric Holder speak and then got to shake his hand and introduce myself. What makes the World Leaders Forum truly unique and remarkable is the ability to engage, debate and ask questions of leaders from all around the world. It is the foundation of a Columbia education that we as students are expected to question these leaders about their work.”
My Columbia Day: 
  • 9:10 a.m.

    Start my day discussing two issues that are relevant to me in Human Rights and Public Health. In every class, we have vibrant debates about different aspects of the course.

    Discuss the legal system’s impact on the empowerment of various communities in sComparative Study of Constitutional Challenges Affecting African, Latino, and Asian American Communities, offered through the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race.

    Discuss biomedical ethics cases in Law, Science & Society with Professor Jonathan R. Cole.

  • 3:00 p.m.

    Take the afternoon to go to Central Park with friends to enjoy the weather, walk around Sheep Meadow and pick up some food at the Shake Shack (their burgers and concretes can’t be beat).

  • 8:00 p.m.

    Meet with the Student Organization of Latinos (SOL), where I serve as Vice President. We are planning our main event for the semester, “Nuestra America,” which showcases the food, music, and entertainment of an underepresented country.
