Alexa Bender, ’16

Let’s start simple! Tell us your name, age, year, and hometown.Alexa Bender, 21,  Junior, New Hamburg, (hick town sort of near Toronto), Canada

First off, how do you feel about being Campus Cutie this week?!:) !!

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?Starbucks, because it involves coffee, one of my favorite things, AND I usually get to see some friends there to talk to for a break from class.

Have you had a favorite moment at MMC so far?This may sound cliché, but my sophomore year when I got to dance the incredible choreography of Kate Skarpetowska, with my talented classmates. The support and love at this school is unreal!!!!

Where do you see yourself in five years? Ten?Dancing, and then probably still dancing, somewhere in this wide world. I have no idea where I will be or exactly what I will be doing; which both scares me and excites me, but mainly the latter. I am so thankful that I have been blessed with a passion to chase in my lifetime, and wherever the wind blows, I go!!!

Tell us something people don’t know about you!I can roll my tongue the same way I can roll my stomach. It’s real weird, I know.

Who is your celebrity crush?I’m indecisive…Paul Walker, John Krasinski, Chris Hemsworth.

Favorite class at MMC so far:Arts and Social Justice!!!!!!!

Go-to Starbucks order:Something with a kick!

NYC hangout:Central Park in the summer, my cozy bed in the winter.

Movie:Dumb and Dumber will forever hold a special place in my heart; however, The Theory of Everything was brilliant and Eddie just won the Oscar so…I am really happy about that!!

Favorite song at the moment:Wait by M83. There are basically no words in the song but for some reason it just gets me every time I listen to it!!! I want to cry, in the best of ways. Not my typical reaction.

Anything else you want to add?I like hugs, and I love giving hugs so if you ever just wanna give me a hug or need one; we all have bad days, let me know. I’m your gal!!
