Interviewing Kellie Heye for a profile on Her Campus was a given. She is the most hardworking and stylish person I have come to know. Currently being the President of Phi Mu and a Junior at Elon University, I am constantly amazed at how she manages all the stress and planning in her life while perfecting her hair, putting on a stylish yet trendy outfit, and having the best attitude and enthusiasm toward all.

From: Sudbury, Massachusetts

What is your family like?: My family is incredibly supportive, loving, silly, and genuine. We always have so much fun, whether we're going on a walk or just watching a movie. That hardest thing about coming to college was being away from them.

What is your favorite thing about Elon?: My favorite thing about Elon is the people that I've met here. I'm grateful everyday for the friends, professors, and classmates that have helped make me the person I am today.

What has been the best experience in your life so far?: Studying abroad in Florence, Italy has been the best experience. Not only did I get to eat pasta everyday for 4 months, but traveling around Europe with 9 of my best friends is something that I will never forget.

Favorite food?: Watermelon! I wish it was good all-year, but I definitely take advantage of the summertime :)

What makes you the happiest on a daily basis?: Making the people around me happy contributes to my happiness on a daily basis. I love seeing other people smile.

What inspires your style/fashion style?: I absolutely love clothes and am constantly taking inspiration from fashion magazines and online bloggers!

If you could do one thing with your life, what would it be?: I’m still trying to figure that out but it would be something that helps other people and that makes me happy.

Guilty pleasure?: Online shopping in bed

A moment you've laughed the hardest at?: I laugh a lot of the time! One of the times I’ve laughed the hardest was actually in a difficult situation. My brother had just gone off to bootcamp to become a Marine. My whole family was stressed, tense, and sad. I showed my mom and little brother the funniest picture, my little brother cracked a joke, and we were all laughing hysterically for at least 10 minutes. I think being able to find humor on the toughest of days is a great ability.

Thank you for all your hardwork Kellie, and for making the impossible look easy!
