What made you choose your school? I did my high school in MN, and I knew the campus well. I loved that the University of Minnesota is a good mix of urban and suburban lifestyle. I wanted to be in a big campus, where I can meet a wide variety of students (and the U of M delivered just that and more).
What activity makes you happy? Shopping, reading, meeting new people, having philosophical discussions.
What is your biggest pet peeve? people unwilling to assist others in simple tasks
What is something about you that might surprise someone? I have lived in 5 different states in the US.
What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? I hate to admit it, but I am a sucker for Romance and Inspirational books. My favorite movie will be The Hangover, because it is hilarious! And Notebook (of course). I love watching Glee on TV.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. It sounds like an ideal spot to unwind from busy life
If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? The ability to teleport, because it would save so much time! and I could visit my family whenever I wanted.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? Give it all to my dad because he has been supporting me in every aspect of life, and I know he always will. And I want to help my brother pay for college in a few years.
What are your plans for after graduation? I have some time, but hopefully have a good start to my career. I guess just be proud and happy of my education.
