Chloe Salome Margulis, a spring 2017 graduate with a undergraduate degree in computer science and a minor in information systems, is currently a first year law student at the University of Minnesota Law School.
Q. Where are you from and what did you study at LIU Post?
A. I’m from Port Washington, New York and I majored in computer science with a minor in information systems.
Q. Did you do anything else? Sports? Clubs?
A. I was a sprinter and jumper on the indoor and outdoor track and field team. I engaged in a couple of clubs, like CHATS and I wrote for the [Pioneer] newspaper. I briefly had a column called 10 Questions. Otherwise, I was the tutor for the computer science department and was always getting involved to help my classmates.
Q. You really had a lot on your hands; do you regret any of it? Did you have time for your friends?
A. I don’t regret any of it. I loved becoming active in the community because it definitely helped me grow and mature into who I am today. I believe in a balance between academia, extracurricular activities, and social life. I was able to get that at Post. Yes, it was challenging to fit in time with friends, but I made it a thing whether it was getting lunch after class or running an extra practice for track.
Q. The semester is still new, freshmen are still getting adjusted to college, would you recommend the amount you did to a freshman?
A. No. I suggest to find one thing you are really passionate about and pursue that one thing.
Q. I wouldn’t be able to balance all [you did]. So, what are you up to now? Anything happening in your life?
A. I just started my first year in law school at University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. I also got around to publishing my 8th book. It’s called Curing Eve, and it’s the third in a trilogy dedicated to my grandparents, who were Holocaust survivors.
Q. What are your other books? Do you self-publish them and what are they about?
A. My first book was about the modeling industry, which ironically then became a part of when I was older. I wrote a novella about the industrial revolution and automation. My most recent EVE 1.0 sequences as I mentioned before is another trilogy about my grandparents Holocaust survival stories, which I wrote during my time at LIU. I do all self-publishing. I don’t publish and write with intention of earning profit and becoming famous, I do it because I love to write and want to share my imagination with people. Of course I then have to promote and market myself but it’s better.
Q. Where can we find your book?
A. My books are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Nook, Kindle and iBookstore.
