You just wrapped up the first weekend run of the play The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later. What has your experience been like being part of the cast?
Being a part of the cast has been so great. The Laramie Project: Ten Years Later is very different from anything I’ve ever been a part of here at Sacred Heart! I’ve been in many musicals, but this is the first play I’ve ever done here. This is also the first play I’ve ever done that revolves around an extremely current and contemporary story.
You have a pretty cool health and fitness Instagram account @biteswithbecc! Tell us a little more about that :)
Yes! @biteswithbecc is an account where I share wholesome food recipes, fitness inspiration and wellness advice. I absolutely love the health and fitness community on Instagram (or at least the community that my account and others like mine fall under) because it spreads such a positive message about food, working out and even mental health. @biteswithbecc is almost a year old and I’ve loved every minute of it.
What inspires you to stay fit and prioritize self-care given the typically chaotic lifestyle of a college student?
What currently inspires me to stay fit and prioritize self-care is how good it makes me feel. I really believe it’s good for my mental, physical and emotional well being. Getting a sweat on, my endorphins pumping, or even doing something chill like yoga or stretching all make me feel absolutely amazing, especially when I’m having a stressful/hectic week. Going off of that, finding a balance of everything is KEY! I would always recommend to try and balance your schedule as much as possible. This applies to EVERYTHING! Fuel your body with good, wholesome food but also feed your cravings, whatever they may be. Give yourself time to workout, but also give yourself days to let your body REST! Grind on your academics but also give yourself some social time as well as some “me” time. I somehow fit cooking, eating, showering, laundry, cleaning, working out, six classes, homework, sleep, social life, and normally a show in my schedule and I’m alive and thriving.
What are your top 3 memories at SHU?
1. Getting cast in In The Heights, my first show here!
2. Meeting and making some of my current best friends
3. The two week Spring 2019 Session at SHU in Dingle (does that count?)
Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully in a big film or a show in NYC! But we’ll see where life takes us. Manifestation!
