It has been rumored on campus that you are an avid hula hooper, is this true?I am indeed an avid hula hooper! I just got a new one sent to the college. It’s bubblegum pink!Editor’s Note: This girl has some CRAZY hula hooping skills…..no joke.

Favorite meal in the caféFavorite meal in the cafe is Potstickers. By far. If you don’t like Potstickers then your morals are questionable and we can’t be friends.(That was a joke. I love people and we can still be friends!)

If you could combine Footloose with another musical to form one mega show, what would it be?If I could combine Footloose with any other musical it would be Les Mis. Just think about that- the kids want to throw a dance but instead of having a town meeting about it there is a war in which the students fight to the death and then the Revered is really an escaped convict. That would be some excitement!Or Frozen (which really isn’t a musical yet, but whatever) because who doesn’t love Frozen?

Would you rather be the Queen of your own country or a mermaid?Queen of my own country, hands down.

Would you rather be best friends with Harry Potter or Katniss Everdeen?Best friends with Katniss. I’ve never read or watched any of the Harry Potter books/movies. But Katniss! OH! I love her! We could go hunting together and she could teach me how to be a badass. Plus I could date whoever she didn’t want (meaning Peeta or Gale)Oh! And she could braid my hair for class!

Explain your love of Coca-ColaSo there are a few great things in this world- Matt Damon, sloths, and Coke. It is the most ideal beverage. It can be chilled to a slushie form- Coke Slushies ARE THE BEST!-or thrown over ice. They can be enjoyed solo or mixed with other drinks.Editor’s Note: Kasie has a Coke in hand pretty much every time I have an interaction with her, yet she thought THIS was a weird question, not the one about being a mermaid…

What is one thing on your Stonehill bucket list that you need to complete before graduation?Before I graduate I want to jump in all the fountains on campus and spend the night camping out on Donahue lawn (obviously when it’s not so cold out)

You’re hosting a brunch in your castle (because in this question, you are Queen of your own country) and you are allowed to invite 3 former US Presidents. Who are you inviting?For brunch I would invite Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Reagan.

Beyonce is spotted on campus….how will you manage to get past her security guards to hang out with her for the weekend/sing songs with her/take instagram pics together/chat about how Blue Ivy is doing.Obviously I would have my friend Kamisha twerk in front of her guards to distract them and then I would sneak away with Beyonce. Later that night we would go out to a karaoke bar and sing all her hit songs staring with Bootylicious and ending with Drunk in Love.

Shout Outs: O’Hara family, Ruckus girls, and to Surround Sound- CHEESE!
