FIRST APP YOU LOOK AT IN THE MORNING:
The Weather App to help me prepare for my day.
ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MULTIPLE TIMES:
“The Ruins” by Scott Smith. The book is a fun thriller about college kids on vacation. Unfortunately, it ends the same way EVERYTIME.
BEST ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED:
Do not let fear prevent you from anything. A friend gave me this advice when I was nervous about the move to California in my early twenties, and I have not let fear prevent me from doing anything ever since!
FAVORITE SPOT ON CAMPUS:
Jackson’s Garden, the best lunch spot during the summer.
Tuna on an everything bagel or Peanut M&M’s. It truly depends on what kind of day is ahead of me.
“My Favorite Murder” or any mystery podcast. As somebody who is obsessed with true crime, I can listen to it all day long.
ONE SKILL YOU WISH YOU HAD:
To be able to communicate in all languages
LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT YOU:
I was invited to join a student ambassador program when I was a teenager and had the opportunity to explore Australia where I learned how to crack a whip in the outback, snorkeled through the Great Barrier Reef, and learned how to play the Didgeridoo.
THREE DINNER PARTY GUESTS (living or deceased):
I would want to have dinner with my deceased grandparents and thank them for everything they taught me that I thought was useless when younger.
Michael Bolton with my mother, but I like to say it was Yellowcard at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.
