How were you involved in college? I went to Columbia College Chicago, so we didn’t have the traditional student organization outlets. I devoted most of my time to tutoring undergraduates in writing and getting involved with my Chicago community through OpenBooks, a Literacy non-profit organization! I loved my year at the University of Memphis though as the student involvement there runs deep as the love for the city itself.

If you were given five million dollars to open a small museum, what kind would you create? The museum that I would create would be a happiness museum. It would be filled with little things that make us either satisfied or happy. It would be filled with nice smelling flowers, crackling fires, and your favorite snacks. I would like it to be interactive so that the visitors could have fun enjoying the little things.
