Favorite Movie: "Miss Congeniality" (underrated Sandra Bullock masterpiece)

Favorite TV Shows: "RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Just watch it and you will know how iconic this show is. I love any reality competition series including, but not limited to, "Big Brother," "Survivor," "Face Off," "Dancing with the Stars," ect. I also love anime, specifically "Case Closed," "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood," and "Pokémon."

Favorite Books: I don’t read for fun. Does that make me a horrible person? Of all the books I was made to read in high school, “Catcher in the Rye” was my favorite.

Favorite Sports Team: I’m originally from California, so I have to respect my father’s wishes and root for the Washington Redskins and Oakland A’s. For hockey, my loyalty is to my best friend Kyle and the Los Angeles Kings.

Favorite College Experience: I was in a theater production of “Noises Off!” and it was an absolute mess of fun and joy. I also participated in an improvisation team known as "GUTS" and I loved making people laugh.

Favorite WA Activity: Walking around Green Lake and playing Pokémon Go during the game’s “Community Day” and getting lunch afterwards.

Main Attraction at UW Bothell: The staff and faculty you’ll meet here are just fantastic, truly some of the most wonderful people I have ever met. I am lucky to be a part of this team.

Advice for High School Students: My mother always told me that everything happens for a reason, and she is 100% right. Take the negative experiences and try to find the lesson and the light in its meaning. It’ll help you overcome some of the greatest obstacles.

Fun Fact: In-N-Out Burger is my favorite place to eat on this planet. When I'm with my Grandma in California, we have lunch there every day I am visiting. I can’t get enough.
