I would have the power to stop time so that I could spend more time doing the things I love, like spending time with my friends and family.

For the past 11 years, I have been learning Bharatanatyam, an Indian classical dance form. I also enjoy playing the piano. It’s a way for me to channel my creative energy into a relaxing activity.

Buddies4Math has a special place in my heart. Knowing that what I do actively helps students become better, is incredibly satisfying. I’ve always enjoyed teaching/tutoring, and B4M has been the perfect opportunity for me to make an impact on my community. Looking back, I know that the program has done a lot for me as well. It has made me a better leader, someone that people can come up to for help, and depend on for solutions to tough situations.

The superpower, I would like to have would be invisibility or flight.

I play piano and french horn in my spare time! I also play badminton as well as tennis.

I am super excited to work with the students this year! I am excited to meet new faces and reconnect with students in the past!

If I could have a superpower it would be telekinesis because I could use it to get other powers.

I like to spend my free time with my friends and family. I also like to watch TV and find and make different desserts.

Seeing the students growth and spending time with the students excites me about volunteering for Buddies4Math. The students put so much effort and that encourages me to be better as well. I was not only able to share my knowledge but I also learned so much from the tutors and students. Meeting new tutors was also very exciting as we all come from different places.
