What made you choose your school? When I was graduating from high school, I knew I wanted to enroll in a large state school with great academics, variety of social clubs, surrounded by a close town, and relatively near in proximity to where I am from - which helped make the decision of UMass Amherst an easy one!

What activity makes you happy? Being with friends, playing sports, staying active

What is something about you that might surprise someone? That I took a year off to travel, study and volunteer in Israel in-between graduating high school and entering UMass.

What is your favorite book, movie, or TV show and why? Hands down, my favorite movie is Means Girls. I think that every sentence that Tina Fey wrote is genius! And can never watch the movie too many times.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why? I have seen so many pictures of Greece, and now would love to see the country in person.

What is your biggest pet peeve? When people repeat the same stories multiple times!

If you could be a superhero, what would you want your superpowers to be? To mind read. But then be able to stop listening when I wanted to.

If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it? Invest some, and pay for college.

What are your plans for after graduation? I shall get back to ya on that!
