What is your idea of perfect happiness?
If my day starts with sunshine and a large iced coffee, it’s a perfectly happy morning. But my idea of perfect happiness is more than a moment. A life of purpose and full of loving people is my idea of perfect happiness.
What is your greatest fear?
If you know me, you know that I’m a very paranoid driver. I recently heard a story about a guy who was driving on the highway and his gas pedal stuck at 100 mph. He couldn’t stop his car and he had to weave in and out of traffic. My worst nightmare.
What trait do you like least about yourself?
Meticulousness. I spend too much time and effort worrying about the little things. Sometimes I need to step back and look at the big picture.
Which historical figure do you most identify with?
Mother Teresa. “Identify with?” Maybe. I guess she’s more of a role model. I hold myself accountable to the standard of her actions, values and beliefs.
Who is someone you’ve met at Indiana State you’ll remember the rest of your life?
Lyndi Saalfrank. She selflessly welcomed me to campus and helped me find my place.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I would love to be naturally athletic. As cross-country and track runner in high school, I found some success in running, but it took a lot of hard work. To have a natural knack in running or another sport would be cool.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Not losing my original student ID after three years.
If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be?
I would want to come back as a Labrador retriever because I admire their adventurous and loving spirit. I have two yellow Labs who live their life to the fullest!
What do people notice first about you?
What does BLUE mean to you?
Blue is that feeling of home you get when you see a car with a Sycamore bumper sticker in downtown Indianapolis. Blue gave me the opportunity to be in Indianapolis for an internship. Blue is where I got the confidence to grow, and I won’t forget it!
