What’s your favorite book? Memoirs of a Geisha

What’s your favorite movie? Happy Feet

Why did you choose Penn State Behrend? I wanted to see how I would grow as an individual without my loved ones around me. I also wanted to make sure that I was in an environment where I could get personalized attention.

What other colleges did you apply to? Notre Dame University and Northeastern University

What do you like best about being a student here? Definitely the personal attention and the opportunities that are open to me.

What’s your favorite food from Bruno’s or Dobbins Dining Hall? From Bruno’s I’ve created this sandwich that is amazing. It's white bread, plain turkey, bacon, and provolone, and I get it toasted with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, ranch, mayo, salt and pepper and a little bit of oil. It's a little messy but really good!

What are your plans for after you graduate? Get my MBA and start working for the U.S. Embassy as a foreign worker around the world. No settling down for me!

What advice do you have for students who are looking for colleges? Don't make a hasty decision. Make sure that the college that you're going to has resources needed to grow as an individual.
