The Vine that I quote the most, because I can’t pick a favorite, it’s like picking my favorite child, is “Look at all those chickens!”

My favorite Viner is definitely Nick Colletti.

What are you involved with on campus?

So, I’m an RA on campus, so by default I’m an SDA, and I just recently joined MISS!

What made you want to be an RA?

I lost a package my freshman year with $200 worth of paint because I was taking a paint class. Then my RA guided the entire process to get the package back, which took a month and some change. So I was, like, I need to do this for someone else! So I applied!

What’s something being an RA has taught you?

Honestly, to be confrontational and how much of an impact I can make on one person.

Why should people get involved on campus?

One, you make so many friends! Second, you find what your interests are and it’s just the best thing all around you can do for yourself with campus life.

What are you looking forward to most about studying abroad next semester?

I’m looking forward to learning a new culture, eating new food (I’m literally a foodie), and getting to study in a different country!

It’s Women’s History Month, who are some women you look up to?

My mom, no doubt. She’s literally my best friend, my rock, and if I become half the person she is then my life is gonna be fantastic.

What’s something people may not know about you that you’d like them to know?

I’ve been to 3 continents and 8 countries!
