Shaiba Rather ’17 and Daniel V. “Danny” Banks ’17 settled into an easy mood as they began to banter in a recent interview. “We’ve worked out our dynamic—specifically when to bicker and when not to bicker—quite nicely… but mostly when to bicker,” Banks joked.
The charismatic duo became close after joining the Undergraduate Council last year, when Rather and Banks were elected as sophomores from Cabot and Dunster House, respectively. The two share many interests, including the fact that they are both Social Studies concentrators, and now reference their friendship as a strength of their ticket to run the UC as president and vice president next year.
“I think that has a lot of merit when you’re trying to make big changes,” Rather said. “We know how to complement each other really well.”
