What’s your zodiac sign? Do you believe in astrology? My zodiac sign is the rat. I don’t really believe in zodiac signs but I believe in horoscopes more. I’m a Leo and apparently I am very passionate.
What’s your take on mainstream music? I don’t really listen to mainstream music that much. I prefer slow songs, folk rock, and sometimes pop.

Who are your top three favourite youtubers? I actually only have two: Wong Fu and Nigahiga.
What’s your guilty pleasure? Binge eating chocolate
What can’t you live without? I cannot live without motivational quotes
What’s your favourite motivational quote? “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” I love that quote, it’s my favourite.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I either hang out with my friends or stay home and do something crafty. Or I just go all lazy and go to sleep being as I’m constantly sleep deprived.
If your were given a choice to marry, date, or dump Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, or Ian Somerhalder, which one would you pick? This is so hard, they’re all so handsome. I say, marry Ryan Gosling, date Channing Tatum and dump Ian, he looks too old.
How would you describe yourself in three words? I would say that I am friendly, ambitious and kind of loud.
How would you describe your dream man? He has to be someone who understands my jokes and laughs with me like a little kid. But there has to be moments when he is understanding and acts mature like an adult too.
Tell me something people don’t know about you? I don’t like telling this to a lot of people but I’m actually afraid of being alone sometimes. I always try to surround myself with my friends and loved ones.
How have the first few months at U of T been for you as a freshman? At first, it was very stressful because of all the midterms and it was hard adjusting to university and res life! But after a while I met a lot of great people and university life became much more comfortable and less overwhelming.
Have you been able to get involved in any on-campus clubs? No I haven’t and I really regret it! I’ve been busy adjusting to the heavy course load but I want to join a lot of clubs starting next semester!
What are your goals post-university? Before doing anything serious I want to take a break and travel the world. I want some time to find myself and reflect on life.
