Where do you go to school and what year are you?
I am an incoming senior at Northern Illinois University.
What is your major?
I am a Corporate Communications major with 3 minors in Marketing, Spanish, and Women and Gender Studies.
Where are you from?
Round Lake, IL.
What’s your favorite restaurant?
Cheesecake Factory, checks all my criteria for a good time: Delicious bread and butter, pastas, and of course cheesecake! Also, Drake wrote a song about it.
What is something interesting that no one knows about you?
I actually don’t know how to swim. Very unfortunate for many reasons. Titanic (the movie) takes on a whole new level of fear with this in mind.
If you had to sing one karaoke song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler — a classic.
What is the best movie in the world and why do you think so?
The amount of movies that come to mind are never-ending but, if I have to highlight one, it would be Spy Kids. Mainly because it reminds me of my childhood. Who doesn’t love spies, adventures and gadgets?
