Favorite Quote: “Do you need a reason to not want to lose?” - Hinata Shoyo from Haikyuu!
Fun Fact: I love stupid jokes. Ex. “What’s orange and sounds like a parrot? A carrot.” Get me a good one, and I’ll laugh like no tomorrow.
What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?
I would take my pillow, blanket, and bed. I love sleeping too much to give it up.
Describe three things on your bucket list!
First off, it would be to visit Japan. I have always wanted to visit this country ever since I was little because the culture is so amazing.
A second thing on my bucket list is to learn to speak and understand Ilocano. I can’t for the life of me understand fully what my parents are saying half the time, and so I want to learn this ASAP.
A third thing on my bucket list is to own a corgi, cat, and dwarf hamsters at the same time. I never got to have pet while growing up, so the idea of having pets makes me excited. I have already started with a dwarf hamster named Biscuit.
What’s the best advice you can give someone going to college?
The best advice I can give right now is that everyone is different. Some may finish college earlier, and some may finish later. But all that really matters right now is making it to the finish line. If you see yourself in the future working in the field you’re in, then go for it. Don’t let a couple of bad grades drag you down because if you really want it you’ll get there.
