Sociology and LibraryWhy do these areas appeal to you?
I'm intrigued by people. Hundreds of people roaming by me daily, hundreds of parallel little universes. I feel their truths, lies, and emotions. When I see stars, I don't marvel at the geometric perfections or the mathematical derivations, I wonder at the existence of humanity within the scope of science. I attempt to discover the raw forces that motivates everything, from momentous events in history to why my neighbor lied about having a cherry tree. I search for the origin, the birthplace of all motivations. My pursuit to discover the intricacies of humans brought me to the doorsteps of Sociology.Why does Yale appeal to you?
I start my journey at the heart. The magnificent nave of Sterling library. In my search for knowledge, I'd get lost between the columns of books that tell the stories of an erudite eternity, an extension of the same story that Yale tells in its lecture halls. Each book is inked with memories, of worn corners and smears, remnants of the 3am nights awake, or the midnight trips to buttery with suite-mates. Here, time merge together. The generations before me left their invisible etchings. Tom Wolfe. Anderson Cooper. A trail of glory. I yearn to be part of Yale's story.
