This was one of the questions I asked our new cohort of peer tutors and here are their responses. As you learn about our new staff in the next few blog posts, see if you can guess which surprising fact goes with which new tutor.

  • I cry at commercials.
  • I can knit.
  • My first intern gig on this movie involved me picking up a dead deer off the side of the road for the crew to use in filming the next day–I named him Kenneth. I kept him in the trunk of my dad’s car (he doesn’t know, so don’t tell my dad).
  • I have a turtle whose name is Kernel and I occasionally take him on walks in the summer.
  • I am really into fighting games; Street Fighter, Tekken, but my favorite is Blazblue – I have wanted to compete, but I have never been able to gather the courage to do so
  • I love using exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I’m trilingual- I speak English, Spanish, and Urdu.

  • I collect volumes of poetry, since it’s my favorite form of literature. I’ve been so lucky to own a few Emily Dickinson, Jim Morrison, and Sylvia Plath volumes, just to name my most read ones. However, I wish I had more time to actually read the rest of my collection!
  • I’m a twin and our best friends are another set of twins #TwinTime
  • I used to do stand-up.
  • I like to collage using my old magazines
  • I am an adrenaline junkie who loves to travel! I have traveled to most of the United States where I have been skydiving, deep sea diving, hiking through a volcanic crater, zip-lining through waterfalls, and more. This summer I hope to finally travel outside of the country and continue my adrenaline rushing adventures.
  • I’ve almost died three times as a child.
  • I recently adopted a 2-year-old bearded dragon named Cheese! 🙂
  • My great-grandfather was an Iroquois chief who went to school with Jim Thorpe.
  • I have two snakes, Kolaczki and Ganache.
