Hola Soy Jeff

My name is Jeffrey Freedman, but I prefer Jeff.

My hometown(or neighborhood I should say) is Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.  It’s a nice neighborhood with lots of great food.  I went to Christa Mcauliffe for jhs and Brooklyn Tech for H.S.

Although I am planning to major in economics at Baruch, my dream job is to be a touring rock singer.  I like metal/hard rock, specifically a genre called post-hardcore/metalcore.  Some of my favorite bands include Alesana, Memphis May Fire, Pierce the Veil, Avenged Sevenfold, A Day to Remember, Mayday Parade,etc…  Aside from singing I write lyrics and I’m working on learning guitar.

Some random facts about me include that I am 3/4 Mexican-American and 1/4 Russian-American. My fave colors are black and red, I like skull designs a lot, and I generally just like hanging out with friends.

The majority of my close friends from hs stayed in NYC and I’ve made a lot of new friends at Baruch, so I’m excited for what the future holds.

Hi, I’m Anton

Hey, everyone! As the title suggests, my name is Anton. I immigrated here from Moscow when I was very young and have mostly lived in staten Island since then. I’m a fairly laid-back person and I enjoy snowboarding, skiing, working out, music, traveling and politics. I hope to study abroad in Holland sometime during junior year. I’m somewhat anxious about these next four years, but I think they’ll be fun!

vivian :3

Hi, I’m Vivian (all the way to the right). I’ve lived in New York all my life, but I aspire to explore the world one day. I am a huge movie buff so during my free time I like to watch a lot of movies. I love listening to all types of music. I like keeping an open-mind and trying new things, so I think I’m ready for whatever this class throws at me.

its phoebeeee

Hi, my name is Phoebe. I live in Brooklyn. I like to cook, bike and watch movies. I especially love thrillers and romantic comedies. I am deathly afraid of pigeons which makes living in New York a little unpleasant. I really love to travel and explore new places so I’m pretty excited for this class.

Jihae Lee

Hi, my name is Jihae Lee and I’m from Queens. I like to read, listen to music, and watch movies in my spare time. I’m looking forward to learning about art and discovering new interests this semester.

Dow Dave Kim

My name is Dow Kim, but you can call me Dave. I’m very playful and outgoing, but i can get serious at the proper times. I currently live in the dorms in the upper east side and it is one of the best decisions i have made so far. Jamming out on my guitar, cruising on my longboard, and hanging out with my friends are things I do on my free time. I love college.

Me in a Cherry Blossom Tree at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

My name is Michael Jagdharry. I like to climb things and explore new areas. And if I can’t climb it, I’ll find a way to.
Things I like to do in my spare time are exercise, play handball, longboard, and sometimes play guitar or piano (although I never formally learned how to play an instrument). But right now all my time is being invested into college, which is pretty scary to me, since it’s a whole new environment with new people, new students, and new teachers with different styles of teaching and greater expectations than I’ve encountered hitherto.
