Campus Cutie: Maria Lacambra

Name: Maria Lacambra

Faculty: ArtSci – Global Development Studies Major, Spanish Studies Minor (‘yo hablo espanol’)

Year: 4th

Hometown: please don’t ask, my life is a little too around the world in 80 days

Relationship Status

On reserve at Stauff, check me out (bursts out in laughter, at her own pun)

What are you looking for in a significant other?

A full set of teeth, and a beating pulse (I’m not fussy)

Do you prefer a night in or a night out?

Night in, I’m pretty much Billy Mack at the end of Love Actually

What does your perfect night in look like?

 Take out, an excessive amount of junk food (I’m talking Lorelai Gilmore amounts, here), a Taylor Swift squad, Netflix, and a Game Console (again, not fussy)

What’s your Spirit Animal?

Mindy Kaling…oh wait…do you want an actual animal? Then I’d have to say Stitch (from Lilo and Stich) actually I changed my mind again, I’m a hedgehog.

How would you describe your class style?

Celebrity caught grocery shopping

What will be the title of your memoir?

Size Matters: ‘Short’ Stories from Little People (She’s short, if you hadn’t gathered that from this loaded answer)

Who is your celebrity crush? (They can be fictional or real)

First and Foremost Daniel Ricciardo (Formula One Driver), Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls), Tobin Heath (Soccer Player), Jordan Clarkson (Basketball Player), Fernando Torres (Soccer Player)…Sorry, I have quite a few (laughing)

Name five guests you’d like to have at a dinner party?

(Thinks for a second to come up with a particularly explosive group of people that will make for an entertaining evening)

Bernie Ecclestone (Chief Executive of Formula One Group), Aliza Licht (former VP of Communications for DKNY), Elon Musk, my Aunt, Sheryl Sandberg (wrote Lean In, COO of Facebook)

What would you serve them?

Ever since I watched Julie and Julia, I’ve wanted to have a fancy dinner party where I cook Beef Bourguignon (has trouble pronouncing this) with my famous flan for dessert.

Do you have plans for the future? (I know as a fourth year that’s a terrifying question)

Honestly, no but I’ll tell you my fantasy scenario. I have an eight-year plan, all in which I climb my career ladder, find a partner, and plan a destination wedding to die for, JUST KIDDING!

My actual plan is to get discovered walking the streets of Toronto, guest star in Suits (playing Rachel Zane’s distant cousin at Mike and Rachel’s Wedding), and finally win an Oscar with my performance as the New York City Ballet’s one and only deaf ballerina in a feature film

Since you’re such a budding actor, if you could insert yourself into the universe of any TV Series which one would it be and why?

I’ve been waiting for this question, okay; I would insert myself in the CW DC Universe (within the Flash Series) because I feel I could truly play Iris West’s distant cousin from the future. Also, the Flash is one of my favorite comic series.

Who are the last three people on earth you’d want to be stranded on a desert island with? And three people you would want to be stranded on a desert island?

Last 3 People: Chris Soules from the Bachelor, Pastor Maldonado (but he’s probably the reason we crashed on the island anyways), and my least favorite prof

3 people you would want: Daniel Ricciardo (cause he’d just be so funny), Anna Kendrick (also for comedic relief) and Bear Grills (cause survival skills)
