Occupation: Multimedia Journalist, aspiring Creative Director
Tell us about yourself in under 100 words:
That’s always hard. I LOVE science. Even though I’m terrible at math, I love learning about biology and astronomy specifically. But I’m better at writing. I’ve always wanted to travel and help people who need it. So as a media communications student, I want to start my own print magazine that empowers women throughout the world.
What is something about you that most people don’t know?
I had blue eyes until I was about four. But I love my eyes, they’re my favorite color – green.
When you look in the mirror what do you see?
I see a face that looks tired and has blemishes. But then I see a face that has make-up and I look more defined, more presentable.
What is the most amazing thing your body has done for you?
I recover well. Whether physically or emotionally, I’ve been able to move past challenges.
What are your “Not Enough” feelings? Those thoughts that sometimes sneak into your mind that come from insecurities?
Not motivated enough, not fit enough, not honest enough, not bright enough, not old enough, not happy enough, not confident enough.
If you could look like someone else who would it be? If offered the chance to look like them instead of yourself for the rest of your life would you take it?
When I saw the movie Gia, for the first time, I wanted to look like Angelina Jolie— she’s gorgeous. But I realized no matter who I want to look like, I’ll never be completely satisfied because there are so many beautiful people out there and I’d want a little bit of everyone. So no, I wouldn’t take it.
If you could change one thing about the world that would give you more confidence what would it be
Photoshop. It makes us so critical of ourselves and we wouldn’t have to compare ourselves to the people we see in ads and magazines.
