What do you look for in a guy?
I look for personality. I think being able to communicate your thoughts effectively is definitely important. I like to laugh, and I like people who make me laugh. I like someone who is straight-forward, honest, and who really appreciates the little romantic things and can pick up on that. Behind all the sarcasm, I’m a huge romantic so I like someone who can figure that out and then acts on that.
What’s your favorite thing about Northwestern?
The campus. I love going out to the lakefill when it’s pretty out, which unfortunately I haven’t been able to do much this year. Also, I like to walk up the little path with all the painted rocks. I like to read all the cute things written on them – it’s a casual hobby of mine. I really like the food in Evanston, too.
What are you involved in on campus?
I am in the Delta Delta Delta sorority – haha, Tridelt. I am also on the video desk for The Daily Northwestern. I am in the Society of Professional Journalists, as well as the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
Oh, you’re Hispanic?
Yeah, my mom is from Cuba. I know I don’t look it, but I’m actually 50% Cuban.
And you do a lot of journalism stuff – how are you enjoying that?
Yeah, I’m majoring in broadcast journalism. I actually just got back from Washington D.C. where I was reporting on Capitol Hill. It was a surreal experience. I got to be face-to-face with the big time leaders of our country. Vice-President Joe Biden spoke to me directly – it made the whole experience totally worth it.
