MQ: Do you have a story that you’d care to share with us all?
“At the beginning of my senior year of college, I realized I hated my major. I had no idea where I was going to go with it. My whole life I assumed I would just be a doctor. I didn’t know where to go from there. I just knew I didn’t want to do biochemistry anymore. One night, hanging out with a bunch of people in my unit, one of my friends who had previously bartender said that he was going to make drinks. I asked if he could teach me how to make one, and he offered to teach me how to make a tequila sunrise. It was rather simple, but I made a couple for my friends. The feeling was more satisfying than anything I had ever done. He started teaching me how to make more drinks, and I became more and more interested in bartending. I ended up taking a bartending course over winter break and I got a job downtown a few weeks later. I am still learning quite a bit, but I am enjoying it more than any job I have ever done. It is relieving to have some idea of what I’m doing after college. While I might not know where I’m going later in life, at least I have an idea of where I could go next.”
MQ: How do you feel about being nominated as a Campus Cutie?
“Honored. I’d like to thank my girlfriend, my major advisor, and my dog, Kaylee.”
MQ: What would you like to be remembered for?
“Making people laugh and making people happy.”
