1. What year are you?-  I like to call myself a “super junior” but I applied for graduation last semester, so technically I’m a senior :)


2. What is your favorite Jewish food? Chicken noodle or matzah ball soup, duh. (Bagels and lox is a close second though!)


3. What are three words that describe your personality? Quirky, inquisitive and sarcastic, or we can just go with meow.


4. If you were running for office, what would your campaign slogan be? I wouldn’t run for office, I would just run away.


5. What do you think is the most important quality in a friend? For me, friendship is a two way street, if one person is putting more effort into the friendship/relationship than the other, that’s extremely frustrating. So I guess, mutual respect and decent communication skills


6. What was the most important thing that happened to you last week? I didn’t die in a plane- does that count?


7. If you could paint anything, what would you paint? I dont like to paint. I’m a sculptor like my dad.


8. What TV sitcom family would you be a member of and why?  I would be a combination of Hayley Smith and Roger Smith from American Dad! Because Hayley is a free-spirit who stands up for what she believes and Roger because he is an alien and a really fun guy.


9. If you weren’t limited with money, where in the world would you go for a week and why? I would go to Italy to see where my dad lived for a couple of years before I was born.


10. What would you like to be known for? My ability to connect with others. My artwork. My laugh.

12. What event would you like to start happening at Hillel? MORE SUSHI
