UIC Life

Local or Commuter?


What are you involved with on campus?

I’m involved with the Filipinos in Alliance organization and I intern with KEEN Chicago on West Campus.

What is your favorite thing about UIC?

I like how UIC is right in the middle of the city, so you can never get bored if you want to go places. Chicago is my hometown and never truly appreciated it until I started attending UIC.

What is your least favorite thing about UIC?

All the supposed anti-riot fortified buildings. They’re very aesthetically unappealing.

Where is your favorite place to study at UIC?

Study? Okay…

What are your plans after graduation?

I want to get into Occupational Therapy so I’ll be applying to some of those schools that specialize in that.


Fun Facts

Favorite place to eat?


If money were no object, what would you do all day?

Spend it on Chili Chicken from Ghareeb.

If you can pick anywhere to travel, where would you go and why?

I would travel to Japan because it’s such a beautiful country with a rich history. It also has a lot of cool technology things.

What is the first thing you notice about people?

The way they smile (or don’t) when they talk or greet each other

If you could try out any job for a day, what would you like to try?

I would want to see what it’s like to be an actor. This of course includes all the groupies too.

Favorite quote?

“Please welcome the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Dazeem.” – John Travolta

How would your friends describe you in 3 words?

Funny, weird, confused    



Love Life

Interested in:


Single or taken?


Who is your celebrity crush?

Either Emma Watson or Kristen Bell

What is your deal-maker?

If a girl has a sense of humor, it’s a done deal.

What is your deal-breaker?

If a girl likes to gossip and talk down on others, then it’s no deal.

What would your dream date be like?

My dream date would be somewhere tropical or involving water. So probably just going to the beach and hanging out with a bunch of food.

If you have a song to describe your love life, what would it be?
