You travel a lot with your family and recently visited Rome over vacation. What was the trip like and how did it differ from the many other places you’ve visited?

[The trip] was very fun and we got to see a lot of stuff that was semi-current in history like the Pope, but we were also able to see artifacts, such as churches, statues, and paintings, that have been there for thousands and thousands of years which was grandiose compared to other places I’ve been.


If you could live in any place on earth where would it be and why?

I would probably live in DC because I enjoy the city. It’s boring in places like The Berkshires and I don’t like anyone here besides you, so I’d assume that there would be more of a variety of people that I’d get along with.


What will be the biggest challenge for you leaving high school and transitioning into your new life at George Washington University?

Not being able to see my parents and my friends all of the time will be a challenge for me, but I’m excited to see what’s to come at my new school.


What is it like to have parents who own Ben’s, a retail clothing establishment, on Main street in Lee?

Annoying. I rarely get to see them because my mom has another job and my dad is at the store all day everyday except on Sundays, so they’re both always busy.


If you could own a business what would you want it to be any why?

None. I don’t want any business. I’d rather work for someone than come up with everything by myself.


What are the benefits of your parents owning a store?

It was easy to get a job, and I like my job now because no one ever comes in the store, so I barely ever have to do anything but I still get paid.


What do you do when you aren’t working or at school?

I watch Law and Order and documentaries about Modern American History.


Interesting! What was your favorite documentary about and why was it your favorite?

I like the CNN ones about the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s. There isn’t a certain reason why I’m interested… I just like those types of shows.


What are you most proud of in your life?

Being a mother to Leonard Utrid, my cat, who is my best friend. She is really cute and she brought a dead mouse into my room last night. I’m the only person who feeds her and takes care of her so that’s why she brought me the mouse… and that’s all I have to say.


If you won the lottery what would you do?

I would buy a house for my cat and I would buy Kevin, my dog, a diamond encrusted collar. I would also buy myself a fancy car and then I would go on a vacation somewhere.


If you were the president, what is the first thing you would do?

I’d exile Donald Trump because he’s a traitor, he has lied to the American people, and he is a terrible person and president.


Guacamole or salsa?
