- What made you join Her Campus?
I joined Her Campus because I wanted to get more involved at UCSD. I was going through the list of organizations and Her Campus stuck out to me because I like how it is women supporting and inspiring other women! I scrolled through the online magazine and realized that I wanted to be a part of this team.
- How has the pandemic changed you in a good way?
The pandemic has allowed me to prioritize self-care. At the start of quarantine, I started working out with my family. It became a habit and I became passionate about fitness and nutrition. In general, I feel like I became more disciplined with health and wellness. I make sure I drink enough water, take my vitamins, and do my skin routine every night.
- What are some things in your bucket list?
I want to skydive and go bungee jumping at least once even though I know I will be so scared.
- If you could star in a movie, which movie would it be?
I would definitely want to be in The Devil Wears Prada because it’s one of my comfort movies. I love all of the outfits and I would want to be able to wear all of the clothes, shoes, and purses for free.
- What is your best memory of UCSD of San Diego so far?
In the summer, I went on a kayaking trip with Outback Adventures to the Black Canyon near Arizona. We were there for almost a week and lived outdoors. I had no idea what to expect and it was definitely outside of my comfort zone, but I am so glad I went. I felt like I was in a survivor show because we had no access to bathrooms, limited clothes, and cooked in the backcountry. I made such amazing friends and I will never get this trip.
