If you could spend a day with anyone (past or present) who would it be?





Track & Field                                                                                                                             Junior

Saratoga, CA (Saratoga HS)                                                                                 Psychology (Roosevelt College)

I would spend the day with Ina Garten, more commonly known as the Barefoot Contessa. I have like five of her cookbooks and we would spend the day baking and gardening with her husband Geoffrey because "how bad could that be?"


Baseball                                                                                                                                   Senior

Huntington Beach, CA (Calvary Chapel HS)                                     Management Science (Roosevelt College)

It would have to be Steve Jobs. The impact he made on the world we live in through technology has been incredible. Although many have said he was a harsh boss to work for, I'd love to see how he approaches innovation and his attention to detail in every process. I think that's a unique characteristic that he posed that led to the success of Apple.




Cross Country                                                                                                            Junior

Fountain Valley, CA (Fountain Valley HS)                                                      Human Biology (Marshall College)

I would spend a day with Mother Theresa because I really admire the genuine and selfless care she had for people and would like to learn from her.





Women's Tennis                                                                                                          Junior

Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Peninsula HS)                   Economics/Management Science (Roosevelt College)

Megan Fox becasue she has toe thumbs like me.



Softball                                                                                                                            Freshman

Belmont, CA (Notre Dame HS)                                                                      Undeclared (Sixth College)

It would definitely be Jesus becasue I'd love to see firsthand how he treated people and the way he lived because he is my favorite.
