Splash at Yale Team

Hi, my name is Jack, and I am a senior in Hopper College and one of the current Co-Presidents of Splash. Outside of Splash, I am a Statistics and Data Science major and am also completing a program in Education Studies. Other activities I do consist of serving as a statistics research assistant, other education/mentorship initiatives (particularly around disability and LGBTQ+ identity), and an education policy research group. My hobbies include reading, strategic board games, and current events.

My name is Ava, my pronouns are She, Her, Hers and I am currently a junior majoring in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and am an Education Studies Scholar. I am from LA, California. In the future, I hope to be involved in medicine and education. In my free time I like to bake, color vases, and play the violin. On campus, I teach Farsi, volunteer at the Yale New Haven hospital, and work with refugees. Most importantly, I am one of the co-presidents of Splash!

My name is Landon Allen, and I am currently a junior double majoring in Psychology and English. I grew up in Long Island, New York, and I am interested in creative writing, tennis, psychology and education! On campus, I work in a psychology lab and am part of both Telltale, a storytelling group, and New Haven REACH, where I serve as a mentor for high school students applying to college. I co-directed the Spring Splash 2019 program, and more than anything, I love to teach classes in areas involving positive psychology and development!

My name is Avi Cohen and I am a sophomore at Yale University interested in medicine; I am planning on majoring in biology. I am from Burlington, Vermont, and have lived there my whole life. In my free time, I enjoy running and skiing. At Yale, I also interview patients at Yale New Haven hospital about their life stories. In addition to being an Admin, I like teaching Splash classes about physics! I am currently a co-director of Spring Splash 2019.

My name is Maria Canon and I am a sophomore majoring in Physics and possibly Psychology. I have moved around quite a bit but my family now lives in Jacksonville, Florida, although upstate NY (in the country) was my favorite place to live. In my free time, I enjoy reading, talking, movies, Crossfit, exploring, and traveling but especially learning about cool new things! I am part of the Yale AFROTC program and want to be a pilot in the military after college. I am honored to join such an amazing program as Splash and am excited for what’s to come!

My name is Matthew Chin and I am currently a Yale sophomore in Berkeley College. Originally from Malden, Massachusetts, 20 minutes outside of Boston, I attended MIT Splash in high school. I am passionate about Statistics and Data Science as well as Psychology. Outside of being an admin for Splash, I enjoy balancing my academic life with activities such as running and innovating with Design for America.

I am Natalie Troy and I am a sophomore interested in history, education, spanish literature, and data science. I spent the first half of my life living in Princeton, NJ and the second half in Chapel Hill, NC (go Heels!). On campus, I am a member of the Yale College Democrats, Ramona (the women’s club ultimate frisbee team), the Yale Undergraduate Legal Aid Association, and a teacher and admin for Splash! In my free time, I enjoy hiking with Yale Outdoors, reading, and exploring coffee shops, cat cafés, and art galleries around New Haven. My favorite constitutional amendment is the Fourth Amendment and my favorite author is Jane Austen.

I’m Jackie Folmar and I’m a sophomore in Berkeley College! I’m from the suburbs of the best city in the world, Chicago. At Yale, I’m a college advisor through Matriculate and I work with Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Flyte Scholastics. I’m super interested in science and I’m currently considering majoring in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry. In my free time, I enjoy watching Netflix and reading. This is my first year with Splash and Sprout, and I’m excited to help students have a wonderful time at our programs!

My name is Matt Wang and I am currently a sophomore in Saybrook, objectively not the worst college at Yale. I’ve spent most of my life in Princeton, NJ, but I tell people I’m originally from L.A. so people won’t question my loyalties to the Lakers and the Rams. I’m super interested in physics and philosophy, but will probably major in mathematics anyways. Outside of Splash, I’m in the Society of Physics Students and First-Years in Service; in my free time, I like to play the piano, play basketball, and procrastinate.
