When you're not in the classroom, where can we find you in Boone? In the Administration building (which is where I work), at the SRC working out, or on my couch watching sports.
What is your favorite thing about Appalachian State University? The feeling of being a part of a family. The slogan "Appalachian Family" is not just a selling pitch: in the last 3 years I have come to know that it is the reality. We are indeed a family here at App. And I love it.
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be? Easy pick here: Erin Andrews. She's too good to be true.
What is your favorite thing to see a girl wear? Leggings, sneakers and a sweatshirt. But they have to be on the right body, you know…
You just figured out that you won 3 million dollars. What do you do now? 1) Finish paying for college; 2) Buy a house in Watauga County and one in Italy; 3) Make some good investments.
What is your idea of the perfect date? There is no better place for a date than the wonderful, rolling hills that I can see from my house in Italy. I promise American girls don't know what they're missing out on and they would be absolutely astonished. Italian is better. Always. Don't you ever forget that.
What is the most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to you? Three years ago I was pulled by a couple of cops in Italy for driving without a license (not that I had forgotten it: I just didn't have it). My granddad, who was in the car with me, tried to bribe the cops by offering them a big bird he had just hunted. They almost put both of us in jail. Scary more than embarrassing, but still…
Describe yourself in 3 words: Passionate, honest, overwhelming (let's face it, most people can't handle my heart and passion: I've got too much).

What do you want to do with your major after school? Eventually start my own business, but probably something with event marketing or advertising –those are my two fields.
What do you like to do in your free time? I like to hike, play hockey, and I love to snowboard.
Where is your favorite spot to go in S.F.? I love North Beach and the bar scene on a nice Saturday afternoon. I also love Hayes Valley, I’m a little bit biased, but my favorite place to go there is the Two Sisters Bar & Books.
What’s the biggest difference between Europe/Sweden and the U.S.? Americans tend to be much more individualistic. The food is different - and there’s a lot more of it on your plate. It's a lot cheaper here, for example, gas. And everything is bigger here! The climate is a lot better too; you’re not experiencing four months of winter.
What’s your ideal date? First of all you have to have a connection with a person. Depends on the person, but I like taking walks because it’s easy to make conversation. An ideal date just flows by itself, you're not staring at you’re watch the whole time –and the girl can keep up conversation. An ideal date is a date you don’t want to end.
What do you look for in a girl? IQ –intelligence. Good looks –but no specifications, without trying to sound superficial I think you need to be attracted to the other person. Also, a good sense of humor, and good health meaning non-smoker, no weed, and good diet, it’s attractive when a girl can take care of herself.

If you were to plan a romantic date for a girl you want to make your girlfriend, what would you do ? First I would pick her up from her house and take her to a nice restaurant, somewhere fancy. After dinner I would take her on a walk through the park (not a park in Richmond). I believe that long walks helps you get to know the other person on another level; you learn things about that individual you never knew till that day. After our walk I would take her home, but she does have the choice to come back to my place. But since I do like her I'll take her home.
Describe your future wife? My future wife has to be funny, trustworthy, honest, and outgoing. I love an independent woman, but independent to a certain extent. I also love a woman who has drive, a drive to succeed.
Where would you like to go on your honeymoon? Isn’t that the womans decision? But if I had to choose it would probably be Spain. I’ve never been, heard so many good things the country.
Do you have any long term goals? Yeah! I actually want to one day start a family. I want to be able to provide for my children and give them all the things I was not able to have as a child growing up. Another long term goal I have is to be wealthy. Everyone always talks about how rich they want to be, I just want to be wealthy. Wealth comes with a lot, it is not just money. It also consist of land, stocks, and other types of property.
What is your biggest fear? My biggest fear is losing my mother; I do not know what I would do without her.

Favorite food: Thai food. My life hasn't been the same since my friends introduced me to Pad Thai.
Favorite restaurant in Philly: It’s a three-way tie between Hummus, Pattaya, and New Delhi. Oh, and Banana Leaf. I love food.
Favorite pick-up line: "Let's count shoulders." My second favorite is "girl, you must be exhausted because you’ve been running through my mind all day."
Celebrity crush: Keira Knightley.
Best pranks you’ve pulled off: I was able to get into one of my friends' rooms and while he was at breakfast I took all his clothes and tied them into a huge rope of clothing. I proceeded to hang the rope of clothing from the junior balcony on top of McClelland. When he left McClelland after breakfast he noticed that there were clothes hanging and I believe he said, "I'd hate to be that person." Little did he know that it was all his!
Another time I was able to get into the same friend's room, and on his wall he had photos of himself that spelled "India." I thought his room needed redecorating… so I rearranged the photos to spell out "Aly." Somehow, he knew it was me.
Most embarrassing moment at Penn: I don't know if this is embarrassing or just heartwarming but I was in SHS when I first got to Penn and I was trying to find a shortcut after stopping by International House to get my documents approved (something only international students have to deal with) and somehow on my way back to the Quad I ended up on Baltimore Avenue. It was raining cats and dogs outside and I ended up being really late to convocation…and my clothes were wet. I even called a new friend I made during NSO and he gave me the wrong directions; he intentionally misled me.
Best Penn memory: Probably the third or fourth night of NSO — I was with my new friends and one night instead of going out we just stayed in and played ping pong, ate crêpes and watched movies. It was delightful because those friends turned out to be my best friends at Penn.
Oh, and also the night my friends surprised me on my birthday with tickets to see a hockey game (Toronto vs. Philadelphia). They gave me two tickets and when I got there they were all waiting for me. That same night they got me my favorite kind of cake from The Cheesecake Factory and then they took me back to my room, which they had decorated, and one of my friends got me a signed jersey from my favorite hockey team.

Hobbies: The oldest hobby I have is paleontology. At some point in time, I wanted to study science, biology, evolution, and ultimately, paleontology.
