Zubin Hill '17

"In brightest day, in blackest night…Beware my power—(Red) Lantern's light!" Yes, I am red class (and I have no idea why reciting the Green Lantern oath isn’t a thing). I’m a journalist for the Bi-College News (where others’ misfortunes are our pleasures). I’m also a proud Haffner worker and Renewal Christian Fellowship member. Seriously, my Haffner and Renewal families are the awesomest! As music runs in my veins, it is my hope that sophomore year will feature me performing in a big way. To my thinking, there are many changes and challenges on the road ahead and I look forward to all of them!
…Mostly.

Kristie Oh '15

Born in Connecticut but raised in Seoul, South Korea, I am a senior Pre-Law History major & Political Science minor. At school, I'm the Public Relations Executive for the Korean Students Association as well as Amnesty Intl. Interested in Strategic Communications, I studied abroad during the Fall of my third year in Copenhagen, Denmark (& traveled all over Europe)! As an Alumni Regional Scholar, I interned in Seoul for ArirangTV post-second year, & was rewarded LILAC Summer funding for my Marketing and Communications internship with the L.A. Area Chamber of Commerce this past summer. My #1 rule for this year is to enjoy my last year (eep!) at Bryn Mawr as much as I can before graduation!

Isha Pandya '16

Born and raised in New Jersey, I am now a sophomore here at Bryn Mawr College pursuing a pre-veterinary track. I love dancing, music, food, reading, and talking; which is why I love making videos! In addition to this video blog, I make educational videos on my YouTube channel and I am a part of Tri-Co Mayuri—a South Asian fusion dance team. I love learning about the world around me, both in and out of the classroom and I love sharing what I learn with others. In the future, I aspire to help rehabilitate endangered/threatened species of animals around the world by constructing communities in which both wild animals and humans can coexist in harmony.

Marissa Mirecki '16

From a shoreline town in New England, I am a junior psychology at Bryn Mawr where I am a three-season athlete. I love to see the world around me from a street view not available on Google Maps while running with the Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field programs at Bryn Mawr. I have spent this past summer working in special education. I hope to work in occupational therapy in the future.

Jenn Thoman '15

I am a senior majoring in English. I hail originally from Bergen County, NJ, but I grew up in Upstate NY, and I've lived all over the Northeast. I'm a McBride Scholar, and I love talking about what that means with folks both inside and out of the immediate Bryn Mawr community. My love of McBrides and the college have pushed me to become the McBride Advocacy Co-Mistress, as well as a member of the Honor Board. In what little free time I have left, I work in the theatre (my first love) building sets and hanging lights, and I do a LOT of Bikram Yoga.
