Why I'm a Good Fit: I am lucky, smart, and hardworking. I am an elitist, but I also find my situation funny (when I drink cognac with my family at night after returning from the tennis club, I know it is hilarious; I realize my peers in academia are privileged to lead the lives they do). I would like to be able to talk with other people who lead similar lives. Many people seem to assume that since I drive a nice car, live in a nice house, and am fairly successful academically, I must either a) be a spoiled brat or b) not have any worries. HA!
