triathlon, compete in the Amazing Race with my sister, learn how
to farm, find a four-leaf clover, experience a white Christmas,
ice skate on a lake, become fluent in Italian…
Who would you trade places for a day with?
Jason Bourne. Who wouldn’t want to jump across buildings, drive
fast cars, and travel the world as a secret agent?!
What is your favorite home cooked meal?
No hesitation: homemade spaghetti (made by my siblings and I)
with my mother’s homemade pasta sauce! A meal is not complete
until you have dessert, so some form of dark chocolate dessert
would top it off!
What do you like to read?
In the morning, while eating breakfast, I read the NY and LA
Times. At night, I read my fashion magazines (Elle, Bazaar,
Vogue, etc). I also just started the Sherlock Holmes volume. In
the summers, my little sister and I have a reading contest. Some
of my favorite books include: Once a Runner, 4 Minute Mile, To
Kill a Mockingbird, Animal Farm, and The Great Gatsby.
What is the best concert you have attended?
The one my siblings and I put on while stuck in traffic on the 101
(usually Basshunter or Michael Jackson are kind enough to be
our backup signers).
Where do you normally study?
Local coffee shops: Copa Vida, Francesca’s, or Joe VanGogh.
