If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? Italy, though I've only been there once, is basically my home away from home. If I could travel anywhere, I would travel to a small town in Italy and live like the locals.
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? My superpower would be the super ability of never having to sleep. So many great things happen at night. Not only would I witness these great events, but I would also be more productive because I would have more time!
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I would be one of those lame people that put the majority of a million dollars into a bank account. If I had enough confidence, I would probably invest quite a bit of it as well.
What are your plans for after graduation? After graduating I hope to do further studies in another country and acquire a higher degree.
What made you choose your school? Concordia gave me a decent scholarship, is building a new business school, and the people seemed friendly. It was either this school or another that would deplete me of all monetary funds (and then some!).
What activity makes you happy? I love studying, traveling, doing active things like soccer, spending time with friends outside, spending time with friends inside, pretty much all things college students enjoy (minus the studying).
What is your biggest pet peeve? My biggest pet peeve is when people turn in academic papers without editing them. At the very least, run a spell check! It clears up so much!
What is something about you that might surprise someone? At any point during the day I could be listening to music performed by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, or Taylor Swift. Diverse? Perhaps, but I enjoy the intricacies of each artist.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? My favorite book is "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad. This was the first book I read in high school that had a deep meaning and that I thoroughly enjoyed. "Heart of Darkness" is also an incredible commentary on the social aspects of Victorian English society.
