Age: 23Major: Television, Film and Media with an option in TelecommunicationsRelationship Status: Single

What made you choose Cal State LA?I come from The Bay, and there was a point in my life where I was feeling stuck. I chose Cal State LA because it meant moving to another city and a new school. I was really excited for the new adventure.

What does you daily routine look like?I wake up and make my way to check my social media sites. I get up change and get ready for school. I have breakfast which is very important. Get to school, knock out my classes, have lunch, I get home and get ready for work. I arrive home from work at about 10 pm. I complete some homework and go to bed, wake up and do it all over again.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?Wow... five years is a long time. Hopefully I’m back home in the bay with my family, working on some film projects, and living in life.

What qualities do you want in a significant other?They need to have a sense of humor, and be super down to earth. You know, someone who is super chill. If they are somewhat edgy in their attitude I’m sold.

What is your favorite place in the city?Griffith Park!! I love hiking. It reminds me of home. That view of the LA Skyline on the top of the hill is completely worth it.

What hobbies do you have outside of your major? I really enjoy hiking. It’s a great way to exercise and enjoy nature. I am really into traveling, comics, and jamming out to music in my car.

Favorite Artist?Dang that’s hard. I love music so I can’t pinpoint one artist. My favorite male artist is the boss, Mr.  Kanye West. My favorite band is Weezer, and my favorite female artist is Britney Spears.

Pets?I love pets; dogs and cats. I once had a cat, Garfield. He was the coolest cat in the world.

Social Media?Social Media is tricky. It can be used for good or bad things. Its great for networking and making connections with people that may lead to great opportunities. The bad thing is that some people take social media way too seriously and with the dangers of cyber bullying people just need to relax.
