Flagler Portraits-13

1. Year, major(s)/minor(s), plans after you graduate:

I am a Senior, with an English major and a minor in creative writing. After I graduate I plan to first pursue my real estate license. My mother has been top producer for her real estate company in the Florida Keys for almost ten years. I plan to practice real estate until I am able to generate enough capital to open my own retail business, allowing myself ample time to be able to read and pursue my hobby of writing.

2. What’s the last book you read for fun?

Right now I am reading the Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and it is really damaging my studies. It is the most recent book I have read for fun and I highly recommend it…over Christmas break, though, of course.

3. Coffee or tea?

Tea, but that is really hard. I am fueled by each every day.

4. If you could be any literary character for a day, who would you be and why?

I would be Holden Caulfield because he just is who he is and that’s enormously hard for people these days. I find it quite admirable. Plus, I think a red hunting cap would be a pretty groovy staple in my closet.

5. Quote to live by:

“The motions of Grace, the hardness of the heart; external circumstances.” –Pascal, Pensée from the epigraph of Rabbit Run. I asses every day how this quote fits into my life and it always startles me.
