My name is Matthew Weerakoon, and I am a rising sophomore from Beverly Hills, Michigan- not California unfortunately. I am studying mechanical engineering with a minor in philosophy. At Michigan I'm involved in SAPAC as a workshop facilitator, 1st Gen Engin, and the College of Engineering Peer Mentor program. I am really looking forward to playing beach volleyball and ultimate frisbee through rec sports this fall. I enjoy getting outside and getting active but also having a night in playing video games or watching a movie. I'm also excited to cook up a lot of new recipes I learnt how to make last year, but I am most excited about living this year to the fullest!
