Activities Coordinator

Sana Mojarradi

Always down for adventure, basketball, good conversation and mediocre-or-better food. Come say hi if you see me around, I'd love to meet you!

Buttery Managers

Shah Khan

Hi, my name is Shah Khan, and I’m an Applied Math major from Grayson, GA. This will be my third summer in New Haven, and I’m super excited for it. Some of my favorite things to do are lying in hammocks, playing kubb (look it up!), and cooking food. My favorite thing to eat in the Buttery is a Nutella and Cream Cheese sandwich.

YSS Counselor

Annabel Chyung

Hi! My name is Annabel, and I'm from Miami, Florida. I'm a rising junior in Morse College, and I'm majoring in Psychology/Neuroscience. I've been playing the violin since I was 7 years old, so I'm an avid fan of classical music, in addition to Broadway shows, food, books, and Netflix. Looking forward to meeting you all very soon!

Cody Clements

I am a rising Junior in Davenport College and a high jumper on Yale's Varsity Track and Field Team.  I am double-majoring in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and Economics.  I haven't quite figured out what I want to do with my life yet, but I think being an anesthesiologist would be exciting and rewarding.  Other than track and field,  I like to spend time watching college football, hiking, traveling, eating chocolate and taking long walks on the beach.

Alejandra Corona Ortega

Even though I was born and raised until the age of twelve in Mexico, I have lived in New Haven, CT for eight years, so I consider it my home. I love spicy food. My favorite current show is Jane the Virgin but my all-time favorite is still Avatar: The Last Airbender. I also know every song from the musical Hamilton.

Tiffany Fomby

Singing, getting to know people (especially over coffee), and eating make me happy! I'm a Theater Studies Major and am passionate about art in general!  I can't wait to meet you all!

Hannah Greene

​Hi guys! My name is Hannah and I'm a senior African American Studies major in Timothy Dwight College. Find me re-reading Harry Potter and eating Peach ice cream with gummy bears on top from Ashley's somewhere this summer. Also, good memes are my favorite things on this earth so please share your collection with me.

Stephen Irving

Hi! I’m Stephen and I’m a sophomore here at Yale. I'm a big soccer fan and am also in a dance group called Danceworks. In my free time I like to talk to friends, hang out in the dining hall, or relax in the buttery. I love meeting new people so if you see me in the Residential Office or just hanging around, feel free to say hi!

Brian Kitano

My name is Brian Kitano, and I'm a junior in Branford College. I am a Computer Science and Applied Math double major, and love to teach and tutor.  I love playing squash at Payne Whitney, hiking at Sleeping Giant, and going to farmer's markets in the summer. I'm always looking for a squash partner, so please reach out if you're looking to learn!

Victor Kogo

Hi there! Welcome to summer session! My name is Victor, a rising senior in Berkeley College from Western Kenya, majoring in Political Science (International Relations & International Development ID). I love running (they call it track here for some reason), drinking chai (duh!), playing soccer, dancing to everything from Naija to Martin Garrix. I look forward to meeting all of you and hearing your stories. Make sure to shout a Hi! wherever you see me!

Me'Lena Laudig

I am a rising junior from Amarillo, Texas, a land of tumbleweeds and dust storms. On campus, I study Ethnicity, Race, and Migration and Religious Studies and am involved in performance groups and Christian fellowship. I believe that one of my deepest life callings is to consume as much chocolate as possible, and I have done a good job fulfilling it. I am super excited to get to know and spend time with you all this summer!

Nathan Lin

Hi I'm Nathan, a rising junior in Saybrook College! I'm a Computer Science major, peer tutor, cellist, and club frisbee player. My favorite book is Farmer Boy, and I love Cranberry Dark Chocolate Chunk from Arethusa!

Chidera Osuji

My name is Chidera and I am a rising junior at Yale double majoring in Economics and Ethnicity, Race, and Migration. Though originally from Nigeria, my family lives in the metropolitan Atlanta area. During the academic year, I devote most of my free time to my acapella group, Shades of Yale, an education access program called Matriculate, and my on campus job. I'm excited to meet you guys and experience the beauty of New Haven in the summer.

Diego Sialer

Hi my name is Diego Sialer, and I am an upcoming Junior majoring in Molecular and Cellular Developmental Biology. I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, so it comes as no surprise that I am a big fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide. In my free time, I enjoy listening to new music, hiking to see stellar views, and occasionally throwing the rugby ball around.

Eli Westerman

Hi everyone! I'm a rising junior from Hot Springs, Arkansas. I'm quite proud of being from Arkansas; along with some friends I started The Arkansas Society, Yale's best "state" club. Also at Yale, I'm involved in the Yale Political Union, Yale Students for Christ, and Yale Outdoors. I spend most of my extracurricular time mentoring New Haven middle and high school students through my church, Trinity Baptist. Academically, I double major in chemical engineering and classical civilization (although I'm quite interested in philosophy and literature). I love New Haven and have enjoyed exploring it so far at Yale. I can suggest some cool things to do in the Elm City if you like! My life goals are to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail, eat all the best barbecue in the South, and to see the Arkansas Razorbacks win the college football national championship.

Jamar Williams

Hi! My name is Jamar and I actually just graduated from Yale in May. I'm originally from Seattle, Washington and majored in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. One of my favorite things to do here at Yale is to go on long runs and reward myself with a scoop of strawberry ice cream from Arethusa at the end (though pistachio has been growing on me lately).
