My friends would describe me in 3 words as… Considering my friends regard me with varying degrees of fondness, I’m gonna optimistically say: rambunctious, honest, and inappropriate
Where is your favorite place you have traveled to? Disney World, the most magical place on earth!
When you’re not in class, what are you doing? Eating at Sherman, ruthlessly making fun of my roommate, snuggling with my stuffed animals (Mr. Santa Tim Allen Van Giray and Mrs. Honeytrap), and listening to as much pop music humanly possible.
Describe your most embarrassing moment. My mom told me she wasn’t going to be home for the day, so I invited a male friend to come over and… play video games. Unfortunately my mom came home a bit earlier than anticipated and overheard our… game playing. Needless to say I’m cringing and radiating heat as I think about this.
What is an interesting fact most people don’t know about you? I like dogs more than people. Sorry, everyone….
Three things you can’t live without: Popcorn, clothes, and The Golden Girls
Where on campus do you feel most at home? SHERMAN! I hope to get married, have babies, and ultimately be buried in Sherman, preferably covered in french fries.
What is the most dangerous thing you have ever done? Attending the Super Mash Brothers concert last February. My eyebrow ring got ripped out by an unknown assailant in the coatroom and I had to put my friend’s nose ring in the hole so it wouldn’t close up. Janky, janky, janky!
What is your best Brandeis memory? Definitely the weekend of Springfest. I danced and giggled in the sunshine, refused to do any of my homework, made apple pies, and met my lovely family at SSIS for the first time.
What did you do this summer? I spent most of my time refusing discounts to grumpy old women at TJ Maxx, but on my off-time I frolicked at the beach with friends, traveled the world (aka New Jersey), and consumed massive amounts of potato skins.
What are you most looking forward to this year at Brandeis? I’m looking forward to my classes (nerd alert), promoting a sex positive campus with SSIS, and the holiday season! I have more ugly holiday sweaters than a fifth grade substitute teacher.
