What made you choose your school? I chose to go to a public university in the Florida state system because of financial reasons. I fell in love with New College's campus upon my first visit - it was small, friendly, and beautiful.

What activity makes you happy? Being anywhere outside on a lovely day. It always brightens my mood.

What is your biggest pet peeve? Terrible drivers.

What is something about you that might surprise someone? My favorite sport (to this day) is basketball and I loved playing in middle and high school.

What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? My favorite book series is "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin. I love fantasy and Martin is the touchstone (in my opinion) of everything that is so great about the genre. The point-of-view chapters give you short and sweet glimpses inside the internal narratives of some of the most interesting characters ever formed.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? Greece -Santorini looks gorgeous.

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? Mind-reading.

If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? I would travel the world with no plan or structure for a few years.

What are your plans for after graduation? Unknown.
