No! But I am happy I'm here.

Can't remember!

What are you reading now?

Calculus, I love it!

Do you eat fast food?

Once in a while.

What do you miss most about home?

Food (Ugali and nyama choma, not to mention a side plate of kachumbari!). Weather—I just hate the cold weather! Visiting friends without prior arrangements!

I have a lot of favorites. Can't think of a single favorite.

Watch a movie or, probably, sleep!

Don't have any, but I love my curtains a lot.

Rural person—just love the big farms and animals and the fact that it's just quiet!

What annoys the heck out of you?

Daily assignments that are graded.

Who are your role models?

My mother. She is a wonderful and hardworking lady. Ben Carson: from nothing to one of the best neurosurgeons in the world; look out for his book Gifted Hands, you'll love it.

What single piece of advice would you give to President Christ?

We need more exciting events at Smith, like [last year's visit by] the Dalai Lama!
