Name: Hannah Rzepka

Hometown: Waxhaw, NC

Year: Senior

Major: Communication Studies

Fun Fact: I was born in Hawaii…Aloha!  

Her Campus: What made you choose UNCW?

Hannah Rzepka: I was drawn to the beauty and buzz of our campus. After my tour, I had "wings up!" on my mind! 

HC: What about your major?

HR: I jumped in a different line during registration. My grandmother accompanied me and saw the Communication Studies line. I was all set to be a business major, but she did a little convincing and I decided to go for it! I am happy I did! 

HC: How and why did you get involved with Her Campus?

HR: I discovered HC while the girls were tabling outside during the involvement fair. I was over the moon excited that there was an organization that wanted writers! I joined because HC welcomes my creativity! 

HC: What else are you involved in, off and/or on campus? 

HR: I am the Vice President of Lambda Pi Eta, which I have enjoyed. My primary responsibility is to find and keep track of volunteer opportunities for all members. 

HC: What are some of your hobbies?

HR: I have always loved singing. My voice is pretty. I'm not Idina Menzel or anything; more of a better than average songbird. I also enjoy crafting! I love making something for a loved one especially. 

HC: What are some of your favorite films? Books?

HR: “When Harry Met Sally” and “Life is Beautiful” are two of my absolute favorite movies. My favorite books (as of now, the avid reader has that change each month) are “Eligible” by Curtis Sittenfeld and “The Velveteen Rabbit” by Margery Williams. 

HC: What’s your ideal dream job?

HR: It would be a best-selling author or creative chair for a company whose values align with my own. 

HC: What’s the number one item on your bucket list right now?

HR: I want to go back to Kailua with my significant other and explore my birthplace.

HC: What are you interested in doing after graduation?

HR: I would like to work for an advertising agency in some capacity. 

HC: If you could give advice to students right now during this pandemic, what would it be?

HR: Record and reflect. Take in the good, bad, and the ugly. I'm a writer, and when I am going through a period of uncertainty, I jot everything down.
