Where are you from?

Essexville, Michigan

Who is your hero?

Frida Kahlo, Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey

What do you like to do in your free time?

Read, dismantle the patriarchy, watch documentaries and X-Files, obsessively wedding Pinterest.

Favorite quote:

“I hope the exit is joyful, and I hope never to return” – Frida Kahlo

If given the chance to do anything for a month, without financial limitations, what would you do?

I would take a month off work and spend the whole time roller skating at rinks and skate parks across Michigan.

Toilet paper under or over? 

Over. I’m not the Anti-Christ.

I can’t live without:

Dana Scully.

I’m most proud of:

My involvement with Suck It! Suicide, my hometown, and my grades at school.

What’s your favorite holiday? Why?

Halloween-mas. It starts October 1st and ends around January 4th. It’s when I pull all my Halloween decorations and Christmas decorations out and they both stay up simultaneously until after New Years.

If you could tell a younger you one thing, what would it be?

Don’t worry about what boys think. Rollerskate as much as you can, do what makes you feel good, and go easy on yourself and the people around you. Everyone is just doing their best.
