My freshmen and I during QU orientation!
I show my school spirit by: Supporting other organizations at their events on campus, wearing my gold class of 2014 shirt to hockey and basketball games and rockin’ my orientation polo; no one can show school spirit like the orientation staff.
My favorite thing about Fall is: back-to-school shopping and the weather! Not too hot, not too cold. All you need is a light jacket
For Halloween I will be: Yoshi or Pikachu. I’ve always wanted to successfully pull off a Pikachu costume, however, that mission has yet to be accomplished.
Neon pants – yay or nay? Nay for me, but yay to those who can pull them off!
Twitter or Facebook? Twitter. I would rather not stalk someone’s life through their Facebook timeline.
I love Pinterest because: there are so many DIY projects and fashion inspiration! I am obsessed with Pintrest.
My favorite colors are: lime green, mint and coral.
My go-to accessory is: a collar necklace. They’re a perfect way to add a little glam to the basics.
My favorite store is: H&M and Urban Outfitters.
My favorite food is: salmon and popcorn, but not together…
My favorite movies/TV shows are: “How I Met Your Mother,” “Sex and the City,” “Jerseylicious,” “Face Off,” and almost everything on Animal Planet and the Discovery channel. Shout out to Netflix!
My favorite book is: “The Happiness Project.”
My favorite magazines are: “Nylon”, “Seventeen” and “Psychology Today”
My pets are: Coby, Peppermint, Charlie and Poosahn. Coby lives with my mom and the others at my sister’s, but I still see all of them every day!
My favorite quote is, because: “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light” because 1) it’s from Harry Potter and 2) although things may seem as if they aren’t going to get any better, you have to think positively.
My role model is, because: Lauren Conrad because she is the definition of a classy woman. At such a young age, she has already designed and started her own clothing line and written her own book. Not to mention she looks fabulous. She is simply inspirational.
I spend my weekends…: hanging out with friend, having some down time from a busy week and catching up on sleep.
I take a break from studying by…: napping or cleaning.
I de-stress by…: going to the gym.
My secret talent is: I can sing…in the shower.
My friends describe me as: funny, optimistic and creative.
My favorite College Lifestyles article is: “Remembering Values in the Summer Heat.” This article is written by my lovely Big and incorporates the values of my sorority, which I strive to live by every day.
Why I am excited to be an intern for College Lifestyles: I’m excited to get more experience in the field! It is a fast-growing organization many classy co-eds will (if they haven’t already) fall in love with.
My definition of a classy co-ed: A classy co-ed is an ambitious woman who follows her dreams. She has high standards and a killer sense of style.
