What’s your spirit animal?

A honey badger. Enough said.


What’s on your bucket list?

Ziplining, bungee jumping, skydiving, and meeting a famous person.


You’ve never met a famous person?

No, but Krissy from Master Chef tweeted back at me, and Phi Phi O’Hara from RuPaul’s Drag Race retweeted me and replied.


Who’s your idol?

I don’t worship anyone, so I’m gonna say pizza because when done right, it’s just so good. When done wrong, it’s a sin.


What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Bell peppers, pepperoni, bacon, and sundried tomatoes.


What’s your favorite memory at UCR?

My favorite memory is when I was awarded the Superstar of the Quarter award at A-I Dining Hall last quarter. I was standing in the back not expecting to win and speculating who would win, and then my manager said, “You all know and love him!” and said my name.


What’s your favorite thing to bake?

 Pie. Pie is better than cake. Pie is solid. Cake is too fluffy.


Give me a fun fact about yourself.

I can’t burp.


What would you do if you won the lottery?

I would travel, pay off bills, and buy my parents a house. 


If you could move outside the country, where would you go and why?

It’s a split between England and Canada because they both speak English, and I’ve always wanted to go there. I would be a tourist and sight-see and do other impractical things.
