What is your favorite thing about Davis?

The beautiful campus and the beautiful people

What made you decide to major in English?

I love reading and being able to live multiple lives in multiple places through books. Also, I would like to be a teacher one day.

You read a lot. If you had to choose one literary character to be your boyfriend, who would it be?

I can’t pick one! Each time I read a new book, it’s like I’m cheating on my literary boyfriends from before. I love them all!

Who is your favorite literary heroine/goddess?

Katniss, because she’s incredible. I’m also going to see the movie tonight so she popped into my head.

Who is your current celebrity crush?

Liam Hemsworth, only because I’m going to see the Hunger Games later. I have too many celebrity crushes. That’s not a fair question!

We are talking a lot about the Hunger Games. Next question: Team Peeta or Team Gale?

For the movie, Team Gale, because it’s Liam Hemsworth, and he is beautiful. But Team Peeta if based solely on the book.

What is your idea of the perfect date?

Road trip to a beach. I like road trips because you get good snacks and get to listen to good music. Basically I want my life to be like a country music video, like a Keith Urban music video.

Smoking.

My mom is my role model because she’s never wrong!
