Her Campus Emory (HCE): What has been your greatest moment at Emory?

Jake: Every sunny say at Emory is great, but surviving Chinese 201 was definitely a big moment for me.


HCE: What is your biggest fear?

Jake: Besides spiders and runtime errors, I'm afraid of regret.


HCE: What is your biggest pet peeve?

HCE: What is your most embarassing moment?

Jake: My friends and I were caught by the cops for doing a "poop dollar" prank (Google it—I swear I'm not a terrible person). Explaining myself to my friends and my parents was pretty embarassing.



HCE: What is your guilty pleasure?

Jake: Netflix. I hate that I love it.

Jake: "I just saved a baby seal. What's up?

HCE: What is the number one thing on your bucket list?

Jake: I recently crossed off running (and walking) a marathon, so next on the list is skydiving.


HCE: If you could ask your future self one question, what would it be?

Jake: I would ask my future self what his biggest regret is, and then, of course, I would ask for some winning lottery numbers.
