What made you choose your school? I fell in love with Pitzer long before I even visited the campus. I knew that I wanted to make a difference in the world, and Pitzer is the perfect place to do just that. There are so many resources to assist the students in broadening their horizons, and seeing the various ways in which they can make a change. Besides the incredible people here, Pitzer is a wonderful institution filled with innumerable opportunities and I could not be happier with my school choice.
What activity makes you happy? I love writing. Give me a pen and a piece of paper (napkin, post it- anything, really) and I will be a happy camper for hours.
What is your biggest pet peeve? I really dislike rude people.
What is something about you that might surprise someone? I really enjoy dystopian films and books.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? My favorite book is "The Giver"; it really began my love of any and all things dystopia and is a really enjoyable read. My favorite movie is "Love, Actually" because I am a hopeless romantic and movies about love warm my heart (and I think this movie is one of the greatest portrayals of love). I adore "Friends" because of the hilarious characters and story lines.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I've always dreamed of going to Greece because it is so rich in history.
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I think a healing power would be really cool so that I could be able to relieve the world of some suffering.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I would spoil my family and take a very long vacation around the world.
What are your plans for after graduation? I hope to become a publisher or journalist one day. I also want to travel the world and bring people together with the power of words.
