What is your favorite… 

Dining hall? Dana for breakfast and Foss for lunch/dinner!

Place at Colby? Mary Low Coffee House

Thing to do at Colby? Making yummy drinks at Mary Low or wandering the galleries of the Museum!

Movie? Hmm this is a hard one. Probably Amadeus or Black Swan.

Song? This changes every day! But my all-time favorite is probably “Halo” by Cage the Elephant. 

Thing to do off-campus? Since I have a car on campus this year, I love exploring different parts of Maine and then eating out afterward :) Most recently, I went to Rockland and had the most delicious carbonara. 

What is your dream job? I’d love to be an owner of a really cool art gallery in New York City (think: Rufus from Gossip Girl!)

What is your best Colby memory? Seeing my first shooting star over Johnson Pond in October of my freshman year 

Fun Fact! I was born in Tokyo and lived there until I was 8! I still speak Japanese at home.
