What is your most used emoji?

Definitely the crying laughing emoji! The Generation Zs make fun of that emoji as a “millennial thing” now but I will never stop using it.


What’s one skill you’re currently working on? (professional or personal)

I am trying to become more adaptable. I tend to get easily stress or overwhelmed when things change quickly and unexpectedly so I am working on being more go with the flow. Being a type A planner means changes of plans are not often accounted for on my end

I am a really good swimmer! I use to swim competitively and my family always jokes I am 10 times more graceful in the water than on land.

Muji Pens! They are by far my favorite pens and I always have at least 20 scattered around my apartment. They come in many different colours, which I love because I am a big fan of colour coding.


Who’s your hero?

My Dad


If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

Thailand, it is always been a place I’ve been interested in exploring and I’m hoping to go there after I graduate


At which store would you want to max out your credit card/have a shopping spree?

Aritzia! I could spend all my money there in a heartbeat


Pineapple on pizza?

I am one of the few people that does not have a strong opinion about this. I would be very unlikely to order a pizza with pineapple for myself but if someone gave me a piece of pizza with pineapple on it I would happily accept.


Choose a movie title for the story of your life:
