I want everyone who’s a YUNiversity intern and/or staff member to answer these on Medium. It’s fun, I promise.

1. Who are your top three lady heroes?

Fictional or real? Mako Mori, Wonder Woman and Elizabeth Comstock or Ellen Degeneres, Hayley Atwell and Jessica Williams?

2. When you were little, what did you want to be?

An actress. Then I realized I didn’t have expressive eyebrows.

3. Who do you think should run for president in two years?

Jon Stewart. Even though there’s a gif of Colbert above. Sorry, sir.

I have been thinking about this for literally twenty four hours, and it would probably be this poetry book and Aaron Galvin’s Vengeance series!

The Joker. Hannibal Lecter. People scare me a lot more than ghosts and demons.

J.K. Rowling, easily. I’m still a proud Harry Potter nut.

7. What’s your most embarrassing childhood memory?

When I was in middle school, I would walk down this hill where my dad would pick me up, right? And he had just gotten this brand new white prius so he was really easy to spot. Just like a regular day, I opened the passenger door and plopped in, asking if we could go to McDonald’s or something. My didn’t respond so after I buckled up, I looked over at him.

That man was not my father.

We stared at each other and screamed at each other and I learned a valuable lesson.

8. If you had the option of adopting a baby fox or baby koala, which one would you choose?

Screenwriting or just writing in some way that I get paid. And make movies. So screenwriting.
