Hometown and Your Favorite Thing About It: Philadelphia. Cheesesteaks are the best!!! Besides that, telling people I’m from West Philadelphia…born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days…sorry, Will Smith influenced this. What I like most about Philly is being able to explore when I’m biking or walking. There’s something new everyday to see.
Area of Study and Why You Chose It: Interior Architecture. Growing up I’ve watched my Mom and Aunt struggle when completing basic tasks in their own homes. I remember telling myself some day, I’ll design two large houses for my family to live in. I told myself when I become a billionaire (or successful) I’ll design wonderful homes that are not only beautiful but also universal. I believe with “good” design, anything is possible with some imagination.
Favorite Books: A Child Called It, The Lovely Bones….pssssh honestly, I only read if I have to.
Favorite Movies: Too many to count, but you can never go wrong with comedy and action movies.
Favorite TV Shows: Haven’t watch TV in a while since…oh gosh! since I started college. Where’s my life?!
Favorite Foods: Anything and everything. Right now I’m digging the whole Mediterranean food.
Favorite Musicians/Bands: My all time favorite band is Paramore. I’m also into YouTube musicians. In my opinion, they are much better than what’s on the radio.
