What made you choose your school? I loved the community feeling and the multitude of ways to get involved on-campus. And coming from the Seattle area, the year-round sunny weather was a pretty big incentive for me.
What activity makes you happy? Exercising my mind, body, and spirit through reading, writing,running, cooking, and yoga.
What is your biggest pet peeve? People who need to bring others down in order to feel good about themselves.
What is something about you that might surprise someone? I took figure skating lessons for 7 years.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? "Gone with the Wind" has been my favorite movie since I was 10 years old. I love everything about it--the costumes, the history, the score, and of course, the characters.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I would want to tour countries around the Mediterranean such as Italy, Turkey, and Greece.I hear that they're beautiful, have delicious food and fascinating history.
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? I would want to be able to teleport--I think it would be so cool to be able to go anywhere in the world at the blink of an eye.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I would save one third, donate one third to charity, and spend the remaining third on traveling and a house in Provence.
What are your plans for after graduation? I hope to apply my passion for writing to a position in publishing, PR, or journalism.
