What made you choose your school? I was originally dating a guy that went to Frostburg, so I came up and checked out the campus. When I started walking around campus during the tour, I realized I was home. Him and I broke up, and technically I chose FSU for the wrong reason in the beginning, but now I am staying there for the right reason.
What activity makes you happy? I love playing with little kids. Their laugh makes me wear a grin whenever I am around them.
What is your biggest pet peeve? I hate snobby girls.
What is something about you that might surprise someone? I taught myself how to play trumpet, flute, piccolo, clarinet, and piano.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? Book: I love the "Vampire Academy" series. I can relate to Rose. She has a tough exterior, but she has a good heart.
Movie: I love "Phantom of the Opera", because the music is so beautiful and there is a wonderful love story underneath all the action.
TV Show: I am in love with "Game of Thrones", because the story line is amazing, the costumes are wonderful, and you begin to fall in love with and relate to the characters. That's what makes a good story.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I want to go to Scotland, because I would love to see castles!
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I want to be able to read people's mind (I know it's typical). I am going to be a counselor so being able to read people's minds would greatly speed up my counseling session.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I would pay off my student loans with part of the money. With another part, I would set aside some for my children to go to college. With the final part, I would open my own private practice.
What are your plans for after graduation? I want to go to graduate school so I can get my Masters in Counseling. After that, I will be looking for a workplace to call home.
