What kind of music do you like?

I’m sort of obsessed with country music! I love Carrie Underwood, and Britney Spears—even after ten years. Also U2. My dad would always listen to them growing up.

Where do you like to hang out with your friends?

I go over to friends’ houses a lot. My best friend’s mom is a chef, so I’m always going over there! I also like to go to Madison Park Beach with friends in the summer and hang out at coffee shops.

How would you describe your style?

Classic. I do like to stay up with trends, but I also like to look pulled together. I guess you could call it “edgy classic.”

What are your aspirations in life?

I’m dying to travel the world! I want to travel to new places so I can learn from different cultures. I’m hoping to attend Washington State University in Fall 2013 to study business management and fashion merchandising. In my dream life, I’d be my own boss—I would die to have my own clothing store. I’ve always loved philanthropy and would love to be able to tie that in with fashion somehow. But mostly, I want a life of purpose. I want to love my life and be able to look back and know that I lived it the way I wanted to.
