How’s being president of OCF?

“It’s a lot of responsibility, but it’s enjoyable, stressful at times and it’s a really rewarding experience. I love our OCF community service trips because they tie into my passion of helping those that don’t have the advantages that we do. I also love the community of diverse friends that I’m a part of.”

During a zombie apocalypse, what would be your first priority?

“At that stage, I’d raid an expensive car dealership and just joy ride in a Ferrari. I mean we’re all dying anyway.”

What is something you miss about Ireland?

“I miss my friends; the church I went to. I miss Guinness, the beautiful scenery and just the Irish people. But I still love Miami.”

If you could time travel to the past or the future, which would be it be?

“I would travel to the future so I could see what the lottery numbers will be, so when I get back to the present I’ll be a millionaire.” 

Name your ideal superpower and why.

What is a cause you’re passionate about?

“I’m passionate about religious education in schools. We’re so used to learning about the scientific explanations for the world and evolution and we aren’t taught any other alternatives.”

 How would your friends describe you?

“They would probably say that I’m funny, sometimes annoying, adventurous and studious.”

One place you want to visit and why:

“There are so many places…One in particular would be Venice. I want to go sight-seeing and ride on a gondola in Venice.”

Your motto for life struggles:

 “It’s far better to be exhausted from success than to be rested from failure.”

I love writing, cheesecake and Fanfiction.
