Bio: Since elementary school Badyn played violin (begrudgingly) and percussion. She liked percussion, but after years of concert band and full orchestra she was ready for something new. Growing up in Ithaca, Badyn had seen Yamatai perform various times over the years and always loved the energy, particularly at PULSE. So when she came to Cornell, she decided to go to Yamatai tryouts and check it out. After round one she realized how fun playing really was. She was so excited to find out that she made the team because tryouts were the most fun she had had playing music in a while. Badyn is looking forward to learning and eventually performing with the Yama-family!
Likes: Baking, running, making bad art, dragging her friends on long hikes, puzzles, fluffy animals (but also non fluffy ones), rain, sustainability stuff
Dislikes: Wool anything, when it's cold in the fall, mushrooms, when there aren't grapes in the dining hall
