Weirdest SASA experience

   How I learned Henna. I actually started because I joined SASA. Former president Damini Patel saw that I knew how to draw, so she threw Henna at me and said, “Learn!”

What is the funniest memory that you have or story that you have heard at Fairfield?

    I had a “Staged Intervention.” My friends Josh Singleton ’18
and Chris Gutierrez ’19 saw me with my second cup of coffee for the day, at 8 p.m. mind you, and I was planning on studying for another four hours into the night. Chris took my coffee and walked away so I went after him, but Josh held me back. I broke free and begged him for my coffee, but he would not give it back. I cussed him out and went right back upstairs and made myself another cup of coffee and proceeded to study — failed intervention, folks.

If you could be anyone, who would you be?

   Myself five years ago; we grow up too fast and high school was the simplest time of my life. Also, why would I want to be anyone else aside from myself?

What Fairfield tradition will you miss the most when you graduate?

   President’s Ball — I say this on my tours, but President’s Ball is the excuse I have to dress up like it’s prom night once again and dance with my friends without any care of what else is going on in life. I can just let loose with my friends. It matters most because this will be the last time before we all have to buckle down and reality hits — we are seniors.

How many countries have you visited or would you like to visit?

   I have visited Italy, Canada and Japan, as well as several Caribbean islands. I would love to continue to travel to India, England, South Korea and more. I just love traveling in general.
