Name: Leyla Amiri
Hometown: South Pasadena, CA
Status: Currently still devastated after watching Grey’s Anatomy & the fictional death I will never get over…
Place to get mexican food in San Diego?
Lolita’s > Vallarta’s
Coffee or tea?
As the wise Lorelai Gilmore would say, “Coffee, coffee, coffee”.
TV series you’ve been binge watching?
Law & Order SVU. And no, I do not like Criminal Intent.
Place to hang out in San Diego?
La Jolla Cove, Solana Beach, Coronado, Fashion Valley, and of course the Target in Mira Mesa.
Thing about UCSD?
The perfect weather, the committed professors, and I also happen to live with some pretty lovely roomies.
Thing about being a writer for Her Campus?
I love being able to write about things I feel passionate about and learning from other writers about their opinions. It’s refreshing to be part of a club on campus that doesn’t feel like an obligation, but more like a fun hobby.
Let’s Get to Know Each Other:
What is your dream job?
Easy. I’d love to work as a Market Research Analyst for Disney.
What do you look for in a guy?
Someone who can make me happy before I’ve had my first sip of Donut Shop Coffee. It’s quite a challenge.
If you could study abroad anywhere, where would it be and why?
What an appropriate question, considering I will be studying abroad in Rome in the Fall! I chose Rome because I can easily travel all over Europe. France, Spain, Greece, and the Netherlands are all places I hope to visit during my stay. Also, for the pasta and gelato, of course!
