Her Campus Bentley: So, what do you love most about senior year so far?
Ciara Mann: How easy registration was, my FYS class, and having an amazing time living with my three best friends.
HCB: You studied abroad in Spain last semester, so if there was one aspect of Spanish culture you would want to bring to Bentley, what would it be?
CM: Oh, this is an easy one: three hours of siesta time… and that it’s socially acceptable to drink two glasses of wine at lunch.
HCB: What is your signature meal you can make?
CM: I have this garlic, onion, and herb pasta my dad taught me how to make that I LOVE.
HCB: Do you have a secret talent?
CM: Does being able to crack any joint in my body count? I’m also a really good whistler… I love it, but my roommates think I’m one of the dwarves from Snow White.
HCB: If your life had a theme song, what would it be?
CM: “Bad Habit” by the Kooks.
HCB: What makeup item could you never live without?
CM: Mascara, 1000%.
HCB: What pet would you get if you could right now and what would you name him/her?
CM: An Australian Shepherd named Blue, but right now I can barely remember to feed myself.
HCB: What are your roommates constantly telling you?
CM: “You’re a piece of work.” “Why does your body crack so much?” “Why does it smell like onions in here?” “Please go get your hearing checked.”
HCB: If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
CM: Jamón Ibericofrom Spain, did I mention I went abroad?
HCB: What do your close friends call you?
CM: Mostly Cici, but there’s a mix of Cecilia, Chiara, Chichi, Churro, Chihuahua, Chinchilla, Cheech, and I’m sure there’s more to come.
HCB: What is one thing you wish you had known as a freshman that you now know as a senior?
CM: Don’t sweat the small stuff, it’ll all turn out okay. Also, you will survive the horror of GB 112 and 212, if only for the small price of your soul.
HCB: Who do you go to for advice?
CM: My roomies and my best friend from home.
HCB: What is your favorite place in the world?
CM: Cadíz, Spain or Salzburg, Austria.
