He is also a nerdy student who just volunteers, reads and questions people. The most important book in his life is Machiavelli’s The Prince, because it taught him the idea of power.

 

Sarah-Kei Lauw / Writer

Contrary to popular belief, being a Year 2 medical student does not make Sarah-Kei a reliable source of medical advice.

In a game of Would You Rather, Val would answer, “Yes.”
