Campus Cutie Edlene Miguel (’16/17)

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at MBU chapter.

Name: Edlene Miguel

Class: 2016/2017

Favorite Show: Two Days, One Night

Her Campus (HC): Why did you choose Mary Baldwin?

Edlene Miguel (EM): Well, I considered the other Early College Programs back on the west coast, which are a lot closer to home, since I live in California. But when I visited Mary Baldwin, I just knew that this was the place for me; the place where I’d fit in best. I was also very interested in the Dual Degree combined Applied Math and Engineering Master’s Program with the University of Virginia.

HC: So, did you graduate high school?

EM: (Laughs) No, I didn’t go to high school.

HC: What’s your relationship status?

EM: (Laughs) I’m single, and I will be for quite a while!

HC: Why do you say that?

EM: Reasonably speaking, after I graduate I’m going to go on to get my masters or go to law school, and everyone is going to be way older than me. I definitely want to wait until after I’m eighteen to even consider dating since it’s not really a priority for me right now. I also want to first focus on my studies and grow as a person. 

HC: Why is that?

EM: Well, I think for me, dating is when two people in a relationship have the intention of marriage as a future. I think of it as a sort of courtship. I mean, my parents were each other’s first boyfriend and girlfriend, and they’re still going strong! That’s what I want.

HC: What do you think it is that makes you think of relationships that way?

EM: Well other than my parents, I’d have to say my faith plays a huge part in everything that I do and every decision that I make.

HC: When looking for that long-term relationship later in life, would you ever consider dating someone outside of your religion?

EM: Honestly? Probably not. Faith is such a key component in my life, and I think of it as an important building block in any relationship.

HC: Other than faith, what other qualities do you hope to find in a significant other?

EM: The primary quality that matters to me is his faith. I hope that he will be God-fearing and God-loving.
