Q: What is an interesting fact about yourself?

A: I am currently in the Army Reserve.

Q: How is that different from being in the Army?

A: I had to go to basic training just like everyone else, but I am not stationed anywhere. I have to go to drill one weekend out of every month and may be deployed if needed.

Q: Isn’t that stressful?

A: It can be, but I like it. I feel it adds balance to my life.

Q: Why did you decide to join the Army Reserve?

A: I always wanted to join a branch of the military. I decided to go into the Army Reserve when I was 20 after I got my associate’s degree in Idaho.

Q: What made you move here from Idaho?

A: I met my boyfriend in training and he was stationed in Fort Bragg before being deployed to Afghanistan, so I decided to move here and apply to Campbell. I drove seven days to get here!

Q: Do you like it at Campbell?

A: Yes, the South is so different; the entire east coast is different from being out west and up north.

Q: What makes the South so different?

A: People behave differently here. Southern people are definitely the biggest change. And the humidity. I am not used to the humidity.

Q: Why are you majoring in Psychology?

A: I want to go to a midwifery graduate program but didn’t want to major in Biology.

Q: Why do you want to go into midwifery?

A: I want to help people, especially women. Someday I want to help women in third world countries with prenatal care.

Q: How long are you in the Army Reserve after graduation?

A: I have three years after I graduate if I don’t get deployed. I am glad I joined, regardless.

Q: What is your favorite color?

A: Pink and Tiffany Blue
