Where can you be found on campus? Either frantically finishing work in the library or trying to take a nap in between classes on one of the couches.

What are you involved in on campus? So far just Her Campus, but I hope to become more involved when I don’t have such a heavy work load.

What’s your favorite thing about Stockton? I like that the classes are smaller so your professors have the opportunity to get to know the class which assures me that if I really needed help with the material, I wouldn’t have too much trouble. I also feel that everyone is pretty down to earth and friendly.

Hobbies: Writing, listening to music, going to concerts, and procrastinating all of my schoolwork by binge watching series on Netflix.

What are your plans after college? Hopefully working for a great company in my field and living in a city somewhere with a new puppy. 

Who do you consider to be your celebrity look alike? Taylor Swift! I don’t really see it, but I get told I look like her at least once a day.

Who’s your celebrity crush? Joseph-Gordon Levitt. I’ve had the biggest crush on him since I was 12.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? Greece! From what I’ve seen from pictures and from Mama Mia!, it looks like a beautiful country.

Most exciting moment of your life: When I went to New York for the first time this summer, it was so exciting and fast-paced it really solidified my love for city life.

Most embarrassing moment of your life: In high school I walked a mile and half home from school (I was on the main road) with part of the back of my skirt tucked into my underwear. Oh, and it was mix-match day so I was a walking disaster!

Fun facts: I work at Marshalls and can quote most episodes of Golden Girls.
