In your opinion, which is worse, ghosts or aliens? And why? 
I think ghosts are worse than aliens because of the whole possession thing. Aliens are cool though. I’d love to meet an alien as long as I don’t get probed or something.

What do you plan to do post-grad? 
The hope and dream is to go to medical school provided that orgo doesn’t screw me over.

Favorite OYFA Memory?
Barrio is definitely my fav memory. I was sick that day and was basically dying but it was SO much fun nonetheless bc it was great to see the final product of all the dances after like weeks and weeks of practice.
