If you were on an island and could bring three things with you, what would you bring?

Ice cream, for sure! It can make any situation better. Depending on where the island is I would probably bring a blanket with me. I get cold super easily, and being warm is one of my main priorities. My third thing would be a good book. Nowadays it's hard to find time to read a good book, especially with all the things we need to do for school. It would be nice to find a comfortable spot with a nice view, wrap myself with the blanket, eat my ice cream (oops.. can I also bring a spoon??) and read my book.  

What is your favorite thing about being a student at UNCSA?

The incredible community we have. From students to teachers and staff members, everyone here is incredibly amazing, talented and humble. Everyone is always so willing to cooperate and help you out. I could not imagine myself being this happy anywhere else. 

What are some of your favorite spots on campus or in the community?

I think my favorite spot on campus is the Hill. I always have a good time there. It doesn't matter if I am with friends enjoying my free time or if I'm just working.
