  1. What is one of your mottos in life?

    One of the motto’s I live by is “Live everyday as if its your last”. I think it’s important to make sure you live each day the best you can and to live without having any regrets about the decisions you made.

  2. If you could compare yourself to a character in a TV show, movie, etc., what character do you think is most similar to you and why?

    A lot of people tell me I am like Pam from The Office. I never understood why until I watched the show and realized that a lot of her chracteristics are similar to me. She is very simple and kind but she also has her confident side that makes her do crazy things.

  3. In your opinion, what is the scariest interview question you have been asked or can be asked?

    The scariest interview question I have ever been asked is “Describe yourself without using words, and if you want to use words, you have to sing them”.

  4. If you were lucky enough to win the lottery, what would you do?

    I would probably give some to charity and some to my parents. I think it’s important to give back, not only to the community, but to the people who take care of you and have raised you. With the remaining money, I would buy myself as much chocolate as possible, and kittens because they are the cutest things that exist on this planet.

  5. Why did you become a part of AOA?

    I decided to become a part of AOA because I wanted to get involved on campus. One of my friends was already on it and told me to apply as an associate. Ever since then I have been exposed to many different challenges and situations, some outside my cofort zone. These experiences have allowed me to grow as an individual and along the way I have met people that I hope to stay friends with for a very long time. The family aspect that I get on AOA has made my experience at UTSC that much better and I wouldn’t change my decision about applying.
