What qualities stand out to how you view yourself?

I am outgoing, I have a loud personality, and I think I am fun to be around. And I have some great leadership qualities.

What has been your biggest obstacle that you have overcome?

I did a gap year. I experienced working full time outside of college and supporting myself. It was a huge growth period for me. I saw a change in myself and my maturity level. It was a challenging time for learning and growing.

What is your spirit animal?

A tiger. As kid I wanted a pet tiger. But I like them because they’re so feisty.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I have two: India or South Africa. I want to go there within the next two years.

What can you be seen doing on a Saturday night?

I can be seen either hanging out with friends or working.

What is your favorite candy?

I am a candy freak! I love it all, and I don’t discriminate.

What are you going to be for Halloween?

A group of us from the Lee Center are going to go as female super heroes, so I am thinking Spiderwoman.

What is your favorite movie?

Forest Gump. My family recorded it on VHS from TV when I was a kid, so there are commercials in it. It also didn’t have the ending on it, so I learned that Jenny died when I was nine or ten. I cried my eyes out.
