What college are you applying to / going to?

UGA, Auburn, Virginia Tech, Santa Clara and Clemson.

Who was your first Wesleyan crush?

Dylan Jenkins in 6th grade.

What was your most embarrassing Wesleyan moment?

One time I ran into the Plunks and every faculty fellow at Chipotle my sophomore year. This encounter was embarrassing as it was Halloween and I was fully committed to my costume. My costume of course, was the Ghost of George Washington. Naturally, I dressed up in a very conservative ghost costume and powdered wig that hid any shred of my identity. I looked like a little boy and quickly took off my wig for each teacher to greet them.

What is one thing you wished you had done in high school?

Dated Beau Blanton.

If you had 24 hours left to live, what would you do?

Probably throw a quick pity party, then get Chipotle and see where the wind takes me.

What was your dream job when you were a little kid versus what is your dream job now?

I always thought it would be cool to be a dolphin trainer at Sea World, but that hasn’t panned out yet, so we’ll see. Keep Reading
