What are you up to this summer? I’m working at both the Canadian Fringe Festival and Indie Music Festival in June. I also hope to get away to Cape May, NJ with family before leaving for a semester abroad in South Africa. 

What surprised you most when you first got to college? I had more downtime than I’d expected I’d have. On top of that, I didn’t feel like I could spend my free time the same way I did at home. I felt guilty just hanging out in my room for even an hour.

What is your favorite quote of all time?
It’s a three-way tie between:
“you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
“Whatever you are, be a good one.” ~ Abraham Lincoln
“Buzz! The monkeys aren’t working! We’re forming another plan!” ~ Toys Story

What has been your favorite WC memory so far? I organized a Holiday Open Mic Night featuring a concert with one of my favorite singers, Chris Ayer. It was a great night and it was incredible knowing I helped make it happen. 

Favorite Chestertown hangout? Garfield Center for the Arts (Prince Theater).
