What made you choose Queen’s University?

I liked the campus, I instantly felt at home here. I got accepted to the BISC in England, and I wanted to travel so I thought it seemed like a good fit.

How have you gotten involved at Queen’s U?

I joined the Queen’s International Affairs Association (QIAA). I also am an editor for The Observer and for Her Campus ;).

What’s your favourite TV show?

I love Family Guy and I’ve seen every episode of Grey’s Anatomy at least 7 times.

What’s your favourite food place in Kingston?

For a nice dinner when my parents are in town, Tango Nuevo. For a hungover brunch with friends, I love Megalos. For a 2 am drunk muck, find me at Thai Express or in Metro aisle 3 (the chip aisle).

What’s the movie you could watch a hundred times and not get sick of?

I love Titanic, I don’t find it sad I just really like it.

What’s a quirky fact about yourself?

I hate having sticky hands and I have to shower every day. I hate metal cutlery and I can’t stand the smell of coins.

What’s been your favourite course you’ve taken at Queen’s U?

American Foreign Policy (POLS 367). I definitely recommend it.

What’s your favourite meal to cook while you’re at school?

I can make a mean stir fry.

What’s your ideal lazy Sunday?

Brunch at Megalos, then making our living room into a giant bed and watching movies with my roommates after a Metro rip to get snacks.

If you could master any skill what would it be?

Speaking any language.

If you had a plane ticket to go anywhere right now, where would you go?

I would go the Galapagos Islands because I want to see tortoises, penguins and seals. Seals are my favourite animal.What do you wish you could tell your first year self?

Enjoy your next four years, it goes by way too fast.

What are your aspirations for the future?

I’m hoping to go to grad school and then live in Europe for a few years hopefully.

Everything happens for a reason.
