I would love to go to Paris someday. I studied French in high school, and ever since, I have always wanted to go and try the cheeses!
I love Ed Sheeran. I have been dogged on before because a lot of people don’t like him or whatever, but “I Don’t Care.” I know every one of his songs. I think it’s because he was my go-to playlist when I would play video games in high school.
I like space and space-y things. I own about 40 items of clothing with the NASA brand on it, and I even bought my own telescope that I named Big Bertha.
Favorite place on Northwestern’s campus
Hospers Hall. I spent all four years in college living there, and it really had an impact on my development and growth. I was a big fan of walking through the hallways when I was bored to see what was going on, meet new people, or catch up with friends. I definitely feel like it was my second home.
College search advice
The best advice I have on searching for a college is to visit in person. You can do as much research as you want online, but actually being there is a different experience. Go on as many college visits as you can.
