Tell me a funny story about you?

One time freshman year, when I was at a party at a frat (whose identity I will not disclose), I convinced everyone at the party that one guy there had rabies. Mass hysteria ensued. I am no longer welcome at that frat.


Give me your best pick up line:

If you think I am capable of talking to attractive humans, let along hit on them, you are very wrong.


Best pick up line you’ve ever gotten?

“Are you the Goddess of Hunting, because I’m Diana take you out sometime ;)”

(To which I responded that Diana was the Roman name for the Greek Goddess Artemis, who was a sworn maiden for all time and turned men who hit on her into animals and hunted them for fun.)


Fondest memory at JMU?

There are honestly SO MANY, but one that really stands out to me is the Jesse McCartney concert. Me and all of my roommates went together and had such a great time. It was a night full of nostalgia and old memories, as well as making new ones that I don’t think I’ll ever forget.


Why did you join Her Campus / what’s your favorite thing about it?

I joined Her Campus because I love to write, and this was a great outlet for me to be able to write creatively and about things that I love while also being part of an awesome group of girls.


If you could plan your own music festival who would be in it?

Okay get ready for the most indie/folk rock festival you’ve ever been to:

  • Vance Joy

  • James Bay

  • Hozier

  • Bastille

  • The Lumineers

  • Coasts

  • Florence & The Machine

  • Grizfolk

  • HAIM


  • Atlas Genius

If you could spend an entire day with a celebrity who would it be and what would you do?

Tom Holland (the new Spiderman, for those who don’t know him) – he’s a young guy, so we’d have a chill time together. He could take me behind the scenes of The Avengers, and then I could watch him workout shirtless for a few hours. Then we would probably get married.


You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere, where would you go?

GREECE!! I am obsessed with Greek mythology and all of the classical civilizations, and I think the architecture and history and FOOD in Greece would be the absolute best.


What is one song you will never get sick of?

It’s gotta be Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap


Last but not least, it’s 1 am you just got back from a night going out and you are starving what do you order?

Mozzarella Sticks from Tutti Gusti, definitely.
