You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Although I love anything purple (periwinkle in particular), I would want to be a brand new highlighting crayon. Basically because I like to highlight the positives whenever people or myself get down about something.
Would you rather win the lottery or work at the perfect job?
I would rather have the perfect job! In life, you need to feel fulfilled and have a purpose. Without that drive to do better for yourself and for others, sometimes you end up feeling worthless. Having the perfect job can set you up for a happy life even if it is imperfect. (If I could have both, that would also be perfect lol)
What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
I don’t own a car at the moment because I live downtown. However, when I walk around (which I do a lot) I listen to music and just enjoy the fresh air. If I think about anything it’s usually about what’s going on that day or pretty silly stuff. I let my imagination run basically.
What is your most-used emoji?
Probably the heart emoji. ❤️ I love sending love!
What is a professional goal that you hope to accomplish in the next five years?
In the next 5 years, I want to get as much experience as possible in the creative field and hopefully be able to travel for some of it. I think educating yourself on other cultures really helps in understanding people within design.
How would your friends/family describe you?
Probably goofy. I tend to laugh a lot and like to be silly. Other times, I’d say stubborn, but now I’ve gotten better at that.
Is your glass half-full or half-empty?
I don’t really look at it that way. I see it as filled completely, but not to the point of spilling over. I’m an idealist with a realistic view.
Do you have a favorite 90’s sitcom? If so, what is it?
I’m gonna be basic and say, Friends. I love that show. Especially the holiday episode.
Is there anything you wish would come back into fashion?
I love curly hair! So perms! But not crazy big, just enough volume to really make you stand out.
