Amodhya Samarakoon, RubicOnline Chief Visual Editor, Aureus Editor-in-Chief

Senior Amodhya Samarakoon serves as the RubicOnline Chief Visual Editor and Editor-in-Chief of the new quarterly feature magazine The Aureus. Amodhya’s favorite school subject is science, specifically biology (but not botany!) Instead, she loves medicine. In pursuit of experiential learning of her favorite subject, this summer Amodhya traveled to a high school and pre-medical student summer internship at the Stanford School of Medicine to hone her cardiothoracic surgical skills. This super-editor then visited family in Sri Lanka, attending her cousin’s colorful Buddhist wedding. Much of Amodhya’s free time is spent working to make the Rubicon, RubicOnline, and Aureus lovable and stylish for the readers; however, in her spare moments she also appreciates cuddly cats and fashionable clothing. This school year, the classes Amodyha is most looking forward to are Psychology, Economics, and (of course) Rubicon.

The Rubicon conducted a poll of  the student body, with 58 responses, about perfectionism. 41.1% of respondents said that they believed high standards to be the distinguishing characteristic of perfectionists. “They don’t know the meaning of ‘good enough,’”
 said psychologist Adrian Furnham.

“[Perfectionism] can be reinforced by social pressure. I think some people have a higher likelihood of being a perfectionist but I think society pushes perfectionism, said freshman Joey Bluhm
