What major are you thinking about going into?  Honestly, it changes everyday. I thought I was leaning towards PSB (Psychology, Social & Behavior), but I’m also really interested in criminology. I do like the medical side of public health sciences and the human interaction aspect of sociology really intrigues me. It’s all up in the air right now; I’m still trying to figure things out.  

Campus Involvements? I just joined Pi Beta Phi this past quarter and I work at the UCI bookstore.  

What do you like about UC Irvine? I really like how small it is. It’s not overwhelmingly big and I’ve gotten pretty comfortable with where everything is on campus.  

What made you decide to join a sorority? Since I am from Northern California, it’s hard for me to go home and see my family. I have three older sisters and I am really close with my sister, Brie, who I’ve really missed having around.  So, I decided to join Pi Beta Phi because I was definitely looking for that “sisterhood” aspect of the sorority life.  Also, my hallmate- turned-roommate who joined last year used to take me with her to the Pi Phi events, so I already liked the girls in the sorority.

What do you look for in a guy? I look for guys who are tall, athletic, and have a good sense of humor. I guess the typical things every girl says, but I really love when guys have pretty eyes and a great smile, and can make me laugh. Oh and he has to be willing to watch Disney movies with me!

Unknown fact(s) about you: My eyes will change colors depending on the color I’m wearing. Usually, they change anywhere from a dark blue, grey-ish blue, and a green color.  I also used to do a lot of dancing in high school and was Miss Dance of California in 2012.

What’s your favorite food? I really love all kinds of food.

What kind of music do you listen to? Depending on the mood I’m in, it switches between R&B, indie rock, hip-hop, and techno music.

What do you like do in your spare time? I would have to say watching on Netflix and napping are my favorite things to do in my spare time. Don’t judge me!

If you had any super power what would it be? Hands down, telekinesis.

Celebrity Crush? Oh, definitely Liam Hemsworth.

Favorite TV shows at the moment? I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but my favorites right now are Teen Wolf, Pretty Little Liars and Bad Girls Club.
