Involvement on campus: Style Editor/Secretary for Her Campus, Speech & Debate Team
Astrology sign: Virgo
What’s it like being the style editor/ secretary for HC?
It’s so much fun! I love being able to create content ideas, and being able to see how the girls take these ideas and turn them into their own, especially if it wasn’t the way I wouldn’t have written the article. It’s cool to see everyone’s creativity come out.
Who are some of your fashion inspirations?
Oh God, there’s so many: Lauren Conrad, Blake Lively, Kerry Washington, Chrissy Teigen, Reese Witherspoon, Vanessa Hudgens, Gigi & Bella Hadid. Rachel McAdams, Gwen Stefani, and Emma Stone always slay on the red carpets, too.
What is your dream job?
I’d love to host a show like Fashion Police, but I know it would never live up to the original show that Joan Rivers hosted. Ellen’s job wouldn’t be too bad, either.
If you could attend any fashion show during Paris fashion week whose would it be?
Toss up between Elie Saab or Givenchy.
What else are you involved in on campus?
Besides HC, I’m a member of the speech & debate team at Suffolk! I just competed in my last tournament a few weeks ago, which I’m still a little bummed about.
Tell us about a typical day for you?
Wake up & lie in bed for an extra half hour for no reason other than being wicked comfortable. Depending on the day, I’ll run around trying to get to my internship, my classes, or work. Then it’s just homework and debating if I want to go to the gym or not.
What are your biggest turn offs/ turn ons?
Turn ons- good manners, makes me laugh, engages in meaningful conversations.
Turn offs- cockiness, mansplaining, not having drive or ambition.
Who would play you if they made a movie about your life?
Natalie Portman. Or maybe Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want to have with you?
An endless supply of sangria, my dog, & a computer with a lifetime battery
Who is your celebrity crush?
Scott Eastwood. Everything about him is dreamy.
What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
I think just making it to graduation on time, and being afforded so many opportunities while going to school at Suffolk. And as corny as this sounds, growing and learning so much as a person since coming to Suffolk.
What are some of your favorite things to do off campus?
I love going to try new places to eat and shop, especially in the Back Bay. Honestly, sometimes even just walking around the city is fun to do. There’s always so many interesting places and people to see, & I’m excited to be able to do this more now that the weather is becoming nicer!
Twitter or Instagram?
I think Twitter because you’re able to stay more connected with everything happening around the world. And I also think my tweets are pretty funny, but I know that that’s just me.
