Home life: I'm a born and raised San Diegan living with my Dad, Mom, sister, and two cats. My family is close-knit and is always down for a trip to the beach. I love San Diego, but I'm excited about living somewhere totally different.
Intended major and minor: I have no idea what I want to study! But that's why I'm going to a liberal arts college, so I can experiment with different subjects and see what I like the best.
Extracurricular activities & interests: On a typical day, you could find me either sailing, doing yoga, going to the beach, or eating at a Mexican food restaurant. When it comes down to it, I just enjoy hanging out and having a good time.
Favorite vegetable: Asparagus cooked in a little bit of butter and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Yum!
Strangest or most unusual thing that has ever happened to me: I've worked/volunteered at the San Diego Zoo for four years. Over the years, I have pet and/or fed animals such as meerkats, giraffes, camels, echidnas, rhinos, kangaroos, and okapis.
Most prized possession: My high school year book. Reading the notes and looking at the pictures always makes me laugh.
Three words that describe me: Frizzy, bouncy,
Person (alive or deceased) that I’d like to have dinner with: Ellen DeGeneres. I love her sense of humor and admire her totally awesome dancing skills.
My greatest fear: Snakes, they kind of creep me out. I don't know if it's the scales or the lack of feet, but when I see one, I have close my eyes. My biggest freak-out moment happened when I saw a snake slithering through my front lawn. I always look at that part of the yard now when I'm crossing through.
People may be surprised to know that: I have memorized the entire theme song to "The Big Bang Theory" TV show. I dare you to test me sometime.
Favorite quote: "There's no place like home." I don't think Dorothy could have said it any better.
Why I chose Centre College: When I visited Centre over spring break, it just fit. Two different professors, an admissions counselor, and random students on campus all took time out of their day to talk to me. It was the first college where I felt totally welcome and could see myself as a student.
