What is one of your favorite things to do when you’re stressed? I kind of forgot how to be stressed. When I have a lot to do I just think “All you have to do is get through it” and I just have the ability to see the light at the end of the tunnel so it doesn’t really bother me anymore. I think everyone could use this attitude sometimes.

What made you choose Ambrose? A lot of my very good friends went here, and I had visited them a lot. Since they really liked it I thought it would be a good fit for me too. I really liked the close knit atmosphere and how you get to know a lot of people. So, at the end of last semester I left the college I had originally transferred to from junior college and came to be an Ambrosian.

If you could be any famous person for a day, who would it be and why? The petty girl in me wants to say Khloe Kardashian for obvious reasons. But, truthfully, I’d want to be Alton Brown so I’d be able to cook great, Andrew Shaw because I’d love being the hard-nosed bad a$$ of hockey (almost cried when he got traded from the Blackhawks), or Steve Harvey because he is hilarious, I love Family Feud, and it would be so cool to host that show. Seriously, there is never a boring conversation with this girl.

What is one of your best memories you’ve made at Ambrose? Annoying all my friends with questions, because they have been here so much longer than me and I ask the stupidest questions. Their answers are always really funny, though. I had so much fun my first weekend/week here and it really just showed me what kind of decision I had made when choosing to come to Ambrose.

What is your dream vacation? The trans-siberian railroad across Russia. I love trains so much and Russia is just such unchartered territory that I’d love to explore it. That’s really weird, I know.

Who is your role model? My dad because he pushed through a lot of obstacles in his life and put himself through college and law school to become successful. By doing that he created an amazing life for my mom and my sisters. How sweet <3

Do you have any crazy, interesting, or embarrassing stories you want your fellow Bees to know? Too many embarrassing stories to count, but one that sticks out was when I was super jet lagged on a high school trip to Paris. It was almost the end of the day and we had some time to explore on our own and I just didn’t feel good at all. I went looking for a bathroom, and we were almost there and the sickness just hit me and I just puked on the street, like ALL over. My dad (who doesn’t speak French) was trying to explain to the restaurant workers that they needed to clean it up while all the Parisians were just walking through my barf, and my friends were laughing so hard they were crying. It was pretty gross, but looking back now it’s very funny.

What would be your dream career or job? I want to run the social media accounts for a professional sports team, preferably the Cubs or Blackhawks.

Favorite Movie: All the Harry Potter movies, Good Will Hunting, and 10 Things I Hate About You

Favorite TV Show: It’s Always Sunny in Philadalphea, Grey’s Anatomy, Friends, or Parks and Rec

Favorite Singer: Avril Lavigne or the Dirtyheads (If you can’t tell I’m pretty indecisive)

Favorite Sports Team(s): Packers, Blackhawks, Cubs (CAN YOU SAY ANTHONY RIZZO<3<3), Bulls

Favorite Food or Meal: I LOVE all food, but probably gnocchis, Chinese food, steak, or ice cream.
