Tim was born and raised in Seoul, Korea until 2006 when my parents decided to send me to Honolulu, Hawai'i where my aunt and uncle reside. My parents have wished me to study abroad not only to study English but also to study in a more diverse, larger and opportunistic atmosphere and allow me to learn from many different perspectives. Since then, I completed my middle school and high school in Honolulu and fortunately arrived at Ithaca to continue my education. I am blessed to be part of Acacia.

Sid Nanda is an ECE major who loves lamb curry, microprocessors, and Game of Thrones. He would like to point out that he was a fan of the books way before it became mainstream, gosh. In his spare time, he writes poems and lurks on Reddit. He does not yet have an account. He has made several throwaways though. Sid is minoring in Business, as he wants to end up working for a venture capital firm at some point. He is just as confused as you are as to why he is majoring in ECE. Probably because he thinks it's badass.
