Why I Chose NYU

With offers of admission released for the Class of 2019, it seemed only fitting for me to talk about why I chose NYU. Not just once, but three times.

Let me set the scene for you: I was only six years oldand as a birthday present, my parents were taking me to the Big Apple for the first time, to see my first Broadway musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera.

Despite the decades that separate that moment from today, I still recall two things about my first visit to the city that I now call home. First, was the sense of utter fear that overwhelmed me as I assumed that the Phantom’s chandelier would come crashing down on top of me. Second, was seeing Washington Square Park for the very first time. Six year old me was captivated. And without realizing, on that April day, NYU became my dream, one that finally came true 12 years later when I received my acceptance letter.

And so began my second act. I accepted NYU’s offer to live among artists and intellectuals, in and of the city, a midst a dynamic and invigorating community that had no boundaries, or gates as the case may be. In the blink of an eye though, my undergraduate years had come and gone. But how amazing those years were! I had built an education that extended beyond Washington Square Park, to the “classrooms” along the grand boulevards of Paris and the historic squares of Prague.


As fate would have it, I was not destined to stray far after graduation. My advisor – more of a guardian angel – had first welcomed me as a freshman into the Department of History. And under her watchful gaze, I began my studies in the Graduate School of Arts & Science. Another act in my story with NYU.

After graduation (Version 2.0), I decided that it was finally time to bid farewell to NYU. After all, I needed to enter the real world. And I did just that, for all of three months. Soon, I realized that the bonds holding me to NYU were too strong to be severed. By fall, I had returned to campus for my final act, this time as a member of the admissions committee. By saying “yes” to NYU for a third time, I was not only given the opportunity to return to campus, but I was also given the opportunity to build the next generation of NYU, helping others to become part of our global, urban, inspired, smart, connected and bold university.

After all of these years together, NYU, to me, has become more than a university. It is my home; the people here are my family. And if I had to choose to do it all over again, I absolutely would.
