Q & A

If you were a superhero, what would your superpower be and why?

If I were a superhero, I would want the power to time travel. I have always been fascinated by history. The idea of being able to go view how other cultures existed over different timelines is remarkable to me.

What does innovation mean to you?

Innovation to me is creativity. It is the ability to come up with a million different ideas to solve a problem. Innovation is also dedication. It is trying every idea until you find one that sticks.

What was your favorite toy as a kid?

My favorite toy was Littlest Pet Shops. They were these small bobblehead plastic animals. I loved making characters out of the pets and creating storylines for them. I had made a whole little world inside the walls of my bedroom, which was all the entertainment I needed.


Where is your favorite place on 

campus and why?


My favorite place has to be the Dean Dome. I have always loved watching sports, but the energy in the Dean Dome is something else. Being in the risers with my fellow classmates is a bonding experience like no other. For a couple of hours, your emotions are synced with these seemingly strangers. Every point scored followed by pure euphoria and yelling, every ball missed followed by disappointed murmurs, every terrible call by a ref followed by annoyance. For just a couple hours, UNC basketball is all that matters in the world.
