Who is your celebrity crush?

Scott Eastwood because he's a hottie pattotie.

What's a favorite childhood story about yourself?

I once crushed my finger in a door at IHOP because of a door malfunction. I really wish my mom had sued because she could have, but she didn't. I bet she wishes she had now that I am in college.

What TV/movie/book character do you most identify with and why?

 I love Mindy Lahiri from the Mindy Project and Jessica Day from New Girl becaue they both are so perfectly awkward and not afraid to be themselves. I think these two shows portray women accurately and they're comedy shows so that just makes them even better.

What 3 things would you bring with you to a deserted island?

I'd bring my best friend Saphana with me because I've seen Castaway and she's my Wilson. Even though I'd be stuck on an island, I'd also bring a sweatshirt because I get cold easily. Lastly, I'd bring a hair tie. My hair is naturally super curly and after getting wet I look like a lion--not okay.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be the female version of the wolf of Wall Street even though my roomate, who is an aspiring lawyer, does not approve.

What is a quote that you live by?

"Cogito ergo sum" -Descartes

Give a fun fact about yourself:

I'm obsessed with my cat Lilly even though she basically hates me when I show her my love.

And I have a really big fear of sharks so to help myself get over it, I follow instagram accounts that are dedicated to sharks. Whenever I see a video of a shark swimming on my feed, I get really anxious. I want to get over my fear so that one day I can swim with sharks because then I would know that I could do anything.
