Tell me a funny story about you?

Towards the beginning of the year, I was walking back from grabbing lunch and accidentally walked into the wrong dorm building! Mine was the one next to it but they all look the same. I realized my mistake as soon as I walked in, but someone was behind me so I had to play it cool and kept walking to pretend that I actually lived there!


Fondest memory at JMU?

Running across the football field before the first home game of the season for the freshman charge!


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

I love writing articles about anything that comes to mind! It’s really cool to have something published for other people to read.


Dream job?

Marketing manager for a fashion or beauty company


Favorite brand?

Top Shop


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

Greece! It looks so beautiful there.


What is one song you will never get sick of?

Malibu by Miley Cyrus


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?

Definitely Domino’ pizza.

I am an English major obsessed with fashion, iced coffee, and Disney movies. You can most likely find me in a coffee shop editing on my computer, or taking #OOTD pics for my instagram.
