Camila Roldan
What is your favorite quote and why?

I see myself working and in college earning a degree.

What are your hobbies?

What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
I was going to walk up the stairs and as I lifted up my foot to take the first step, the sunlight from the window blinded me and made me miscalculate the step. This caused me to awkwardly trip and as I raised my foot to take another step, the same thing happened. To everyone else around me, I probably looked like a strange person who has never used the stairs before.
