1. What's your favorite spot to study?

Swinging benches on the Plaza.

2. What fashion trend are you currently obsessed with?

I have mastered the art of rolling out of bed and making it to LSRC in 15 minutes, so fashion trends tend to pass by me a majority of the time.

3. What's your favorite place to eat in Durham?

Parker and Otis for sure. Rumor has it that the basketball players go every Saturday afternoon.

4. Devine's or Shooter’s?

Shoots all the way (that cage is my calling).

5. What TV show are you currently binge-watching?

Grey’s Anatomy (TGIT).

6. What's your theme song right now?

Wake Me Up When September Ends- Green Day

7. Do you have any hidden talents?

I can solve a Rubik’s cube pretty quickly and also say the alphabet backwards.

8. Who's your celebrity crush?

Leonardo DiCaprio circa 1997.

9. If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?  

Marnie the Dog (@marniethedog).  My appreciation for dogs is increasing at a rapid rate since being away from my own dog at home.  Also, Steve Rosenfield.  The “What I Be Project” at Duke was possibly the most amazing thing that I have ever experienced.  

10. What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I’m currently on my 6th Duke Card (that’s $30 or 3 meals at Chipotle!) 

11. What's the best advice you've ever received?  

Nothing is more precious than your health and your happiness.
