MOTW: Week 1

Arman Ramezani

Why did you join the IAA?

I joined IAA because some of the upperclassmen I met at Quaker Days suggested I apply, so I just went for it! I actually wasn’t considering SPEV until the New Member Social in Bodek.

What is your favorite thing about the IAA?
I love how much people engage with the IAA and all its branches, initiatives, and events. There’s a culture of not being too cool for the IAA.

Who is your IAA crush?
I have a HUGE crush on Anessa. I’ve thought she was super spicy since my freshman SPEV initiation. She’s only gotten hotter with age.

What is your favorite IAA memory?
Going to Paddy’s Pub in Cusco, Peru, the world’s highest altitude Irish pub. I was with the rest of my amazing Peru crew, had great drinks, and got the nickname of Respectful Pusher.

What is your spirit vegetable?
Spinach! I’m super versatile. You can have me raw, steamed, sautéed, in an omelette, etc. Baby spinach salad? Yum. Spinach Florentine? Amazing. The possibilities are endless!!

What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Waiting on other people. Be it meeting in person or responding to a text, tardiness irks me.

If you could be anyone in the world who would you be?
Natalie Portman has it all. She’s beautiful, intellectual, adaptable, politically active, and respectful (or I’d be Lindsay Lohan, because I don’t know how to throw a party in Mykonos, bitch).
