In college, I was in the same neuroscience class as Natalie Portman. One day, during a lab section, I got to hand her a sheep's brain on a dissection tray. It was a highlight of my undergraduate career.
I have formally studied 9 languages: English, Taiwanese, Mandarin, German, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and Russian. My proficiency in each varies greatly.
