Engineering ’19 Electrical & Computer Engineering
Hi, I’m Erika! I’ve always been interested in martial arts and loved watching it, so when I found out about Cornell Wushu, I knew I wanted to join. I don’t have much experience with martial arts besides a few weeks of Capoeira and one day of Wushu, but I can’t wait to learn more and get to know everyone!
Engineering ’20 Biomedical Engineering
Hey y’all! I’m from Cleveland, Ohio. I have no experience in Wushu, but I’ve always wanted to try it out. In the past, I did acrobatics, figure skating, and fencing. Now, I’m super excited to learn more about Wushu and to meet cool people!
Arts & Sciences ’19 Economics
Hi! I’m Neela and I’m from Kentucky! I joined Cornell Wushu because it looked fun and decided to stay because I really love learning, improving, and performing with everyone on the team! Besides wushu, I enjoy piano and a cappella.
Arts & Sciences ’21 Computer Science
When I was seven I started learning Tian Shan Pai style Kung Fu, and I knew that I wanted to continue learning martial arts in college so I joined Wushu! As well as doing Wushu and Kung Fu, I also like to read, do theatre, and pet cats.
Engineering ’21 Electrical & Computer Engineering
Going into college, I knew I wanted to try some new things. When getting that better-than-RPCC Appel food, I saw one of those really cool chalk drawings for some Wushu thing. Didn’t know what that was, but I showed up to the first practice and have (semi) been showing up since.
Agriculture & Life Sciences ’20 Environmental and
I’m a junior in CALS majoring in Environmental and Sustainability Sciences (Sadly, most people don’t know what I’m talking about when I say ESS). I hail from Brooklyn, one of the five boroughs of NYC, and I’m not too fond of the cold weather at Cornell despite its resemblance to the snowstorms from home. I joined Wushu last year with no prior experience and was extremely delighted to find this club full of kind and friendly people. I enjoy reading and writing in my free time (not that I have much leisure time at Cornell anyway). Occasionally I find myself wanting to sketch a picture or two, but I won’t dare to call myself an artist. I live in JAM and the joke is that I haven’t practiced the piano in months. Recently I’ve started playing a bit and hoped to keep it up.
