Acting Director

Generation 19
Major: Political Science
Why did you join LCC?
I love being funny (in my mind I like to think that I'm hilarious, but my friends may beg to differ) and acting is one of my passions, so it just made sense to find a great place to combine the things! Also, I was always intrigued by the little coyote logo and Mark Quintos.

Hobbies & Skills
I'm a professional singer in the shower. My mom frequently tells me to stop singing because I'll annoy the neighbours. So if you want to live with me in the future, please keep in mind that I sing. A LOT. I also like to think I'm a chef. You can catch me in my room just watching strangers cook delicious meals on Youtube. One time I was in bed circa 2AM and I watched someone make fresh butter on Youtube. It was a horrible idea, but it inspired me to make my own butter! Fatty McFatty at her finest! This isn't really a skill but I can speak Japanese fluently (I am Japanese). And no, we do not live on tatami mats and eat sushi everyday. Do you eat burgers and go to the rodeo everyday? No? That's what I thought.

If you were to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
HUMAN BABIES! Just kidding... I would eat my mother's homemade fried chicken with a bowl of white rice :)

Where are you the most ticklish?
My armpits. But I can't imagine any perverts that would want to touch my armpits for fun.

Who would you be and what would you do, if you can be someone else for an hour?
I would be Jennifer Lawrence and make over the top "bro-y" and "hilarious" statements. Then I would see how many boys fall head over heels for me.

What movie would you like to be trapped in?
I was going to say a Harry Potter film, but knowing myself and my luck, I'd probably be some innocent bystander that gets stuck in the crossfire between Harry and Voldemort. I wouldn't have a wand and even if I did, I wouldn't know how to use it. That's what happens when you don't have a GED from Hogwarts.

What would the autobiographical movie of your life be called and which celebrity will play you?
Dumb, Dubious, Single, and Struggling would be the title of my film. If I could cast any celebrity, the character of Mia would be played by Kristen Wiig. My love interest will be Michael Fassbender and my best friend will be played by Jake Johnson. Mia will fall for both male characters and she will embark on her journey to find true love. However, in the end she'll realize that she's an independent woman who need no man... Yeah, I'm kinda pathetic.
