Ariel Kirshenbaum just graduated from Yale University where she received her B.S in Neurobiology, however she'd much rather you know that she prefers cookie dough to their far inferior cooked counterparts, that she played club soccer during college but scored fewer goals than there exist flying pigs, and that if she were ever to record a singing album, she would do so in the shower, where the acoustics are supreme. She has worked as an overnight camp counselor, a neurology and psychology research intern, and has volunteered in Eritrea and Ecuador. She is very excited to be returning to middle school after graduation as an educator and mentor, and she plans to attend medical school in two years.
