Q: If you were a candy, what type would you be?
A: I think I’d be the mystery Starburst because I’m little and compact but I’m tricky! You don’t really know what you’re gonna get. Sometimes it’s not the flavor you expect.
Q: Justin Bieber asks you out on a date. What is your response?
A: No. I’m not into…no. No. No. Never. God. You couldn’t pay me. He couldn’t pay me.
Q: What is the item from your closet that you cannot live without?
A: I think my cowboy boots. They’ve become me.
Q: What is your favorite dorm room decoration and why?
A: My New York City subway map because it makes me feel like I’m back in New York and I know I’m the only one who has one.
Q: Can you do the “Gangnam Style” dance?
A: This one? (attempts) Yeah, I guess I can!
Q: What was your favorite book as a child?
A: I liked Judy Bloom’s “Fudge” series.
Q: You have to watch one movie every day for the rest of your life. What do you pick?
A: If you were asking me at three, it would have been “Penguin in the Pebble” because I did watch it every single day. But at 20 I would say Sophie Coppla’s “Marie Antoinette.” You can get tired of the same plot, but you can’t get tired of looking at the pretty clothing, desserts and puppies. That’s all you need in life.
Q: What is your favorite kind of tree?
A: Christmas tree! I like the smell and decorating and the pretty lights.
Q: What is that guilty pleasure song that makes you have the urge to dance on a table?
A: Domino by Jesse J. It always makes me happy.
Q: What is something embarrassing that has happened to you at Denison?
A: Okay! Um, where do we begin… Running away from a formal. Getting a blood infection from tripping up stairs. That’s probably the top two.
Q: Last question. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: I wanted to be a mommy. I wanted to take care of little kids like my mom took care of me.
