HCIU: What's an average day look like for you?
SS: Wake up, hit the snooze, make some eggs and tea, rush to class, sing my little heart out usually, hopefully I get a nap and some yoga to top it all off. I’m not that boring though - haha - it varies. 
 
HCIU: What do you look forward to most on weekends?
SS: Sleeping in! 
 
HCIU: Guilty pleasure(s)?

HCIU: As a voice major, what's your favorite romantic song?
SS: Frank Sinatra, “The Way You Look Tonight” 
 
HCIU: Are there any operas that reflect your own ideals of romance?
SS: Most operas end with someone dying or committing suicide because of love so I will probably go ahead and say no to that! But, if I had to pick, I’d say "La Traviata" for Violetta’s sacrifice to Alfredo and letting him move on, and ultimately they find their way back to each other … at least before she dies. 
 
HCIU: What's your ideal first date look like?
SS: Not something too extravagant or put together. Just somewhere that’s nice to talk and interact with one another. If food is involved, super!
 
HCIU: What's the first thing you look for in a guy?
SS: Cliché, but CONFIDENCE! It is so sexy! Also, you can tell who is a genuinely good human being from about a mile away, that sticks out to me as well. 
 
HCIU: How about some turn-offs?
SS: Laziness - absolutely so off-putting. 
 
HCIU: What's something that confuses you about men?
SS: How facial hair is so attractive! Seriously, how do you do it?
