Campus Profile: Zoe Smith

She’s the campus ambassador for CHAARG and a dancing queen — check out this week’s campus profile on Zoe Smith.

What is your favorite movie?

It's a TV show, but Game of Thrones — very invested in Jon Snow. Also, I just started watching Outlander and it as AMAZING! It's about time travel and the Scottish [Jacobite] Rebellion. If you like shows that feel like “watching a book,” you should definitely check it out.


What is your favorite workout class in Madison?

As a CHAARG ambassador, this is almost impossible to answer because I have literally tried it all. But, I’ve gotta go with Dragonfly Hot Yoga power flows. I go every day, and honestly, I think it makes me a better person. If you don’t think yoga is a real workout, don’t knock it until you try it!


If you could be one person for a day, who would it be?

I would say Sophia Bush [from One Tree Hill] because she uses her platform to promote her message of equality and acceptance, and she leads by example.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

When people aren’t themselves/are hypocritical. I feel like this probably annoys everyone, but I just really believe that there’s nothing more awesome than when someone is authentic and open about who they are. Those people are the best people. So like, do that!


What is your favorite food?

This doesn't count as real food, but Skittles. I go through a bag a week — more, sometimes, because life can get stressful. Also, I get a huge thing of iced coffee every day on the way to class. I swear, besides these two addictions, I eat healthily!!!!

Who is your favorite musician?

I’ve been really into Maggie Rogers and Frank Ocean recently, but I don’t think I’ve ever gone a whole day without listening to John Mayer. I know is boring but it's just the truth. Anything but country and I’m in!


What’s your favorite pickup line?

Oh my gosh! I witnessed this work in person (not on me, lol), and it was iconic. “My friend over there wanted me to tell you that I think you are beautiful.”

If you’re ever down to listen to Frank Ocean and snack on some skittles, hit Zoe up for a good time!
