Simone Blond is a Junior born and raised in nearby Woodmere, NY. An analytical number cruncher, Simone is currently finishing up her major in Mathematics and Statistics and has completed a minor in Economics. In her free time, Simone could most likely be found running in riverside, attending on campus events, and reading non-fiction. Outside of her role as a CL, Simone is an active member of the Barnard-Columbia Hillel, a Barnard Babysitter, a city explorer and, most recently, in the process of founding a new Gamma Iota Sigma (Insurance Fraternity) chapter at Columbia. Simone is really excited about the community that Barnard has to offer and cannot wait to begin to contribute towards strengthening the school bond and spirit as a Constellation Leader. She is often times described by friends as overly friendly so feel free to introduce yourselves :-).
