What's the most valuable events that have happened since you've been in college? It hasn't happened yet, but next week I'm going to run my first half marathon with some of the other girls from crew. We are all looking forward to pushing ourselves past our limits, and experiencing the beautiful trails of Rodeo Beach. 

Have you gotten well-oriented at Cal by now? I would say that I am well-oriented with Cal now. It honestly took me a long time, but I think I've finally reached a point where I can say with pride that this place is home.

What are the places in Berkeley that you love most? Even though it's not technically in Berkeley, my favorite place here is undeniably the Oakland estuary, where we row. It's easy to get stuck in a "bubble" on campus, and being on the water in the mornings gives me a rare opportunity to take a step back from the chaos that is being a student at Cal. 

What is something that most people don’t know just by looking at you? When people look at me standing at 5 ft., they usually don't realize that I have a background in boxing and MMA. 

What are the TV shows you'd recommend to everyone? My favorite TV shows are Game of Thrones, the Walking Dead, and Downton Abbey.

What are your go-to comfort foods? My go-to comfort foods are cookie dough, chocolate chip cookies, and corn dogs. 

What or who makes you the happiest? I  get my happiness from my relationships with other people. It's amazing how easily a short conversation with my brother or a friend, who I haven't seen in a while, can turn my day around.
