Kate Lewis English and biology major at the University of Virginia

I'm a second-year Echols Scholar at the University of Virginia, studying biology and English. In addition to being a Huffpost contributor, I write for our student-run newspaper, The Cavalier Daily, and I formerly wrote for The Prospect, a college-advice project aimed at high-schoolers. Fun fact: I'm a classically-trained pianist, and my favorite composers are Rachmaninov and Bach
