Arafat Meah

B.S. in Biophysics, CUNY Hunter College

I am an avid soccer fan and closely follow Major League Soccer as well as other leagues across the world such as the EPL. My favorite soccer teams are NYCFC and the United States Men’s National Team for international competitions (Go Team USA!). I am also into general fitness and like to hit the gym whenever I get the chance.


Long Chen

B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, Dalian University of Technology

I am a Ph.D. student in biomedical engineering. As an introvert, I find solace in the calm rhythms of a quiet life, opting for moments of reflection and solitude over the clamor of social gatherings. My contentment lies in the little joys of nurturing my money tree. I enjoy working out while listening to podcasts and deeply longing for a pet cat.
