What is your favorite… 

Dining hall? Unpopular opinion, but Bobs.

Place at Colby? The art museum is by far my favorite space on campus. I love getting to look at all the new exhibits, or even just doing homework in the lobby.

Thing to do at Colby? Yoga class with Raya!

Movie? Midsommar.

Song? I always say the soundtrack to my life is "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club.

Thing to do off-campus? Probably going out to eat. My Waterville favorites include Pad Thai Too, Jewel of India, and Buen Apetito. 

What is your dream job? My dream would be to run a fashion design empire akin to the Olsen twins or Talita von Furstenburg so that I could attend the Met Gala. But I’d also settle for just being able to work at the Met one day.

What is your best Colby memory? Ice-skating at Johnson Pond during my first-year JanPlan.

Fun Fact! I’m a Gemini (add me on co-star @blytheromano).
