What were you doing when scouted? I’m part of an organization called Aiesec. We’re here to facilitate international internships. I’m heading to a local business to get sponsors for our organization here in Kansas.

Describe your style: It’s usually whatever I see at my job that I usually base my outfit on. Then I take my individual style and put my flair into it.

Fashion trends you love: It’s hard to describe: I like dark slim denim. That’s my thing especially since this summer is all about bright colors. It’s like a trendy/edgy kind of thing.

Fashion trends you hate: Colored jeans. A couple of summers ago they were fine but now they’re just out.

Fashion influences: American Eagle. I work there all the time so I get to see all the trends there.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? I like the downtown area and how many shops, restaurants and cafes there are to visit.

Tell us a secret: I’m open and honest. I really don’t hold secrets.
