When not at camp:  I go to school at MICA in Baltimore where I'm an interdisiplinary sculpture major. I like to bike ride around Baltimore sometimes or walk around taking photos at night.

What's your favorite part about working at camp? I love that I get to enjoy my summer while also working and doing something productive. Even though I'm at my job everyday I still get to do summer things like getting to swim and being outside, which is awesome.

If you could have one superpower what would it be? In a comic that I read there is an imp who has the ability to control reality, so I would definitely want to have that power. He can create anything he wants whenever he wants it and essentially mess with the basic laws of physics like gravity.

What was the best vacation you've ever been on? 2 winters ago I went to Amsterdam with my family for New Years. Don't get me wrong, the fireworks were awesome, but I think my favorite part was getting to experience a foreign country sort of independently. Even though I was with my family I was able to grab a bike and just be by myself for a little everyday. I got to cruise around and get food at random restaurants.
