Who’s that suave, bearded man strolling down Locust Walk? It’s probably Philippe, who comes to Philadelphia from Dubai even though he is Venezuelan but also speaks French at home sometimes. Yeah, we don’t get it either, but we call it nothing short of magical. His life abroad also comes across in his style choices, consistently looking clean-cut and sharp, and his smooth dance moves reciprocate these qualities. He’s majoring in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, and will one day write a book with original works of bilingual poetry and art. Everything from his infectious smile to sharp mind spews “svelte”.
