Q&A with Campbell Faces

JaVonte Perry is a sophomore from Louisburg, North Carolina.  He studies communication and focuses on broadcasting and media.  He has been getting a lot of practice in for his future career through his YouTube channel.  He makes videos that are funny because he loves to put a smile on other people’s faces.  JaVonte makes videos based on events going on currently or things that are relevant to college students.  If you want to find his channel, all you have to do is search “JaVonte Perry” on YouTube.  His channel name is his real name, but he has a character name in his skits.  When asked why this is, he responded by saying:

“My channel name is my government name because I want people to remember my name.  A lot of times I see actors play a particular character or they will have a catchy name, and people only remembered them by that character rather their government name. Therefore,  I want people to acknowledge the funny names, or phrases I use but still remember me by my government name.”

In his future he wants to host a television or radio show.  He knew that to gain practice he could make videos and post them to YouTube, which is what he began doing two years ago. At first he didn’t know how to begin, but one day he posted a video and he has been posting ever since.  JaVonte welcomes any new ideas or anyone who wants to be in one of his skits!  Check out his latest “How  NOT to be a Freshman”.

Midweek Microwave Meals

If you are already tired of eating in Marshbanks, then RA of Burkot, Veronica Hammond, has a solution for you.  At a program she did in Burkot, she taught students how to make five different meals in the microwave.  Veronica enjoys baking and finding new things to try on Pinterest, so she decided to share what she knows.  She made scrambled eggs, french toast, brownies, cheesecake, and mac n’ cheese.  Below are the recipes for each one:

Scrambled Eggs

  • 1-2 eggs
  • 1-2 TBS of milk
  • 1 tsp of butter
  • a dash of salt
  1.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl or mug and scramble the eggs
  2.  Microwave for 1:15-1:30 until it is done

 

French Toast

  • 1-2 pieces of bread
  • 3 TBS milk
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 1 egg (yolk only).
  • Cinnamon
  • Syrup
  1. Melt butter in a mug
  2. Tear up pieces of bread and put them into the mug
  3. In a separate cup, mix egg, milk, and cinnamon
  4. Pour on top of bread
  5. Microwave for 1:30 or longer
  6. Top with syrup

Brownies

  • 4 TBS self-rising flour
  • 4 TBS sugar
  • 2 TBS cocoa powder
  • 2 TBS vegetable oil
  • 2 TBS water
  • A dash of salt
  1. Microwave for about 1:15

Cheesecake

  • 2 oz. of cream cheese
  • 2 TBS sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 4 TBS sugar
  1. Heat up cream cheese for 25 seconds
  2. Mix in all other ingredients
  3. Cook for 90 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds
  4. Refrigerate until time to serve

Mac N’ Cheese

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup noodles
  • 1/2 cup cheese
  • A tiny bit of butter
  1. Microwave noodles and water for about 6 minutes or until noodles are done
  2. Add a little bit of butter and the cheese and microwave for 15 seconds until melted

Men, take note of this if you can’t cook.  The ladies never have to know you only used the microwave!

Here are a couple videos on how to make them:
