WHAT IS YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL?
“An otter because they hold hands when they sleep.”
WHAT IS YOUR BRAIN FOOD?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?
“I really do like green.”
WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?
“Receipts. I have more cash than I usually do because I just graduated. My wallet, my pencil bag, and my planner. I have a sewing kit that I did use the other day, so in that moment, I feel like its value was intrinsic. I also have some hand sanitizer and some lipsticks”
WHAT WOULD YOU BE IF YOU WEREN’T IN PUBLIC RELATIONS?
“I wish was better at science because I probably would have done marine biology. I feel like a lot of people say that, but I scuba dive. I’ve been on dives and seen the coral has become bleached. You can see it happening. It think it’s sad because our oceans are serving as a barometer for what’s happening to our earth, but not a lot of people see it because not everyone is a scuba diver, and not everyone cares. ”
WHAT IS YOUR WRITING STYLE?
“I would say casual. People like to read in a style that they can relate to, so I’ve taken that approach even in my academic writing.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM?
“I use Instagram the most personally. I like to explore Instagram. If I’m tired and in public and I need something to captive my time, I like to scroll because it’s stimulating to me, but I don’t have to think about it.”
GOALS FOR THE FUTURE?
“I want open an non-profit with my boyfriend in the inner-city or a food desert to educate and feed kids. I have a vision of what it would look like: a complex with a prep area for groups of kids, and garden in the back. A lot of people don’t eat well because they don’t know how to cook for themselves and they don’t have access to healthy food.
It would be an after school program, so instead of parents paying for daycare, the bus would take the kids to our program and they would do is either work in the garden or the kitchen and be taught how to cook a meal. Then they would eat it. It checks off a lot of boxes: not only are they learning, spending time outside, but they are also getting free dinner.”
