1.    What was your favorite part about freshman year?

The best part of freshman year was meeting my best friends. Everyone always told me that I would meet amazing people in college, and I couldn’t believe how easy and natural it was for me to find in such a solid group of girls that I share so much in common with and have the funniest times with.

2.    What’s one thing you can’t live without?

Definitely my family. I’ve been blessed to grow up with such a huge group of cousins, aunts, and uncles that all live in Birmingham with me and that I’m so close with. Moving away really made me appreciate them more.

3.    Who in your life do you look up to the most?

I look up to my mom the most because she is the most supportive person in my life. Not only is she constantly being there for me, but she manages to be there for everyone else in her life, as well. I want to be that person for the people in my own life because I know how much of a difference it can make.

4.    What Netflix show are you watching right now?

Well, I’m trying to watch Grey’s Anatomy but it’s a really slow process. Studying pretty much consumes every ounce of free time I have...

5.    If you could trade lives with a celebrity for the day, who would it be? Why? 

If I could, I would trade lives with Donald Trump for the sole reason of getting to live in the White House for a day and use the private movie theatre and bowling alley :)
