Q & A
Hometown and high school? Brookhaven, Pennsylvania; Cardinal O’hara High School
Favorite class? Beginning Drawing- having an art class in the afternoons with a fifteen-minute latte break in the middle was a real stress reliever.
Recommended professor? Dr. Gerrity- She is very open-minded and I’ve never had a more respectful teacher.
Most memorable experience as a first-year student? Pre-orientation at Echo Hill- I got to know some great people and I had a few awesome adventures before the other freshmen even moved in.
If you could be a condiment, which one would you be and why? Hummus- It’s all natural and really good for you!
If you had a superpower, what would it be and why? Time travel- I’ve always wanted to know what it was like living in different time periods. I’d also like to be able to witness natural history before the time of modern humans.
