What was your favorite memory from Rotaract?
“Surprisingly enough, my favorite memory from Rotaract so far isn’t a big event like stayover or volunteering for a cause close to my heart, even though I could go on for days about how much I love those experiences as well. For me, my favorite moment happened after the recent Fire Trails Social when my family group had a chance to connect and get to know each other better. After searching far and wide for a suitable restaurant for dinner, we went back to an apartment to eat, play meme-filled games, and thoroughly interrogate each person with a (somewhat friendly) game of hot seat. Cramped into a living room with music playing in the background, all of us were able to forget any worries of schoolwork or personal lives for a moment as we took the time to- simply put, talk. I felt extremely comfortable sharing bits and pieces of myself with others, and I loved being able to hear about other people’s lives as well as we all tried to get to know each other better. I find this type of connection to be quite special, and I’m so thankful to have been able to share it with the wonderful members of the Mac-Oscar Family.”
What is your theme song?
“Although I’m tempted to choose from some of my favorite songs by The Beatles, my theme song would be “Come on Eileen” by Dexys Midnight Runners. This answer isn’t based of the lyrics and content of the song; rather, this selection is based on how the song makes people feel. Whenever “Come on Eileen” plays, I can’t help but feel a sudden urge to drop everything I’m doing and dance like I’m back in elementary school putting on a house-held performance for my parents. The song is electric, catchy, and filled with fantastic moments to belt out dramatic singing notes that truly only belong within the confines of my shower. While listening to the song, I don’t care about how I look or how horrible my singing is, as I’m far too busy dramatically serenading the poor person that happens to be sitting next to me. The song truly captures my chaotic mind and overly-excited personality with a blasting energy that never fails to brighten my day.”
