Ryan Levin is a senior undergraduate at UNC-Chapel Hill, and he will graduate May 2012 with a degree in Political Science and minors in Music and Spanish. Afterwards, he plans to go to medical school.
Ryan has lived most of his life in Concord, North Carolina, where he learned to call people "sir" and ma'am" strictly to irritate his Yankee parents. After a turbulent adolescence fraught with close friends, essentially good grades, and a general lack of self-confidence around strangers, Ryan began school at Chapel Hill, where his life continued in much the same manner. Ryan hopes to use his experience as a writer here to improve his efficiency, focus, and personal finance skills so that he can someday afford to travel to exotic locations around the Earth.
In his free time, Ryan enjoys being mediocre at almost all the sports and terrible at the rest of them. His passion, though, is making music: he sings and plays piano, guitar, and percussion, as well as dabbling in assorted other musical instruments. He has played in the university's jazz combos for two years and now plays with the school's salsa ensemble, Charanga. He also plays in an acoustic duo with his buddy on Friday nights at this place in Raleigh. It's pretty neat.
