Describe Yourself in 5 Words: Sweet, funny, caring, selfless, cool.

Where is one place you would like to visit? I am 100 percent Irish and I have always wanted to go to Ireland.

What’s the most romantic thing you have done for a girl? This was the hardest question for me. I always strive to be spontaneous and a gentleman, so I had a couple of instances in mind, but one really stood out. In high school, I wanted to ask a girl to prom, but everyone started doing “promposals” and I felt a lot of people were copying each other, as well. So, I decided to go to take action. I went to the flower store, bought a dozen red roses, got a large McDonald’s Shamrock Shake and drove over to her house. I knocked on her door with the shake and flowers in both hands. When she answered the door, her face lit up and I said “Will you go to prom with me?” She said “yes,” of course.

Biggest fear: Snakes. They are scary in any environment!

Who is your role model? My dad. He has always put me and my family before himself. He always taught me to be respectful and to never take life too seriously. 

If you had one superpower what would it be?  Batman does not have a superpower, but I would be him.

If you found a genie and had three wishes, what would they be? Equality for all, no more poverty, and that I can bring my dog to my dorm room.

If you were ruler of your own country, what would be the first law you introduced? Free tuition for college education. Especially since I know the pains of out-of state tuition.

What is one of your favorite quotes? “Someone will always be prettier. Someone will always be smarter. Someone will always be younger. But, they will never be you.”- Kanye West

How did you feel when I approached you about being a Campus Cutie? In high school, I never felt like I was attractive, so being approached was really flattering and made me really happy. Also, I called and told my dad and he said “It is because of my genes.”

I am a senior at the University of Kentucky working towards a major in Business and Organizational Communications and a Media Arts and Studies minor. I love scheduling every moment of the day; this includes, but is not limited to, long walks on the beach, horseback riding into the sunset and being a mix of northern sass with southern class.
