Interests: Majoring in awesome and minoring in awkward, Elvin has a range of talents including but not limited to: a first-degree black-belt, piano, violin, enchanting females with the smolder (at least he thinks so), and sleeping in class. In the rare chance that he isn’t working on a lab report or a chemistry problem set, he will be found debating international politics with anyone interested, playing blitz chess, and speaking more languages than you. His guilty pleasures include baking obscene amounts of desserts and Kpop.
