Face Time

Christianne Beasley’12

Where are you from?

I'm from Westbrook, Maine.

Did you always know you wanted to come to Smith?

I knew after I first visited my sophomore year of high school. My high school French teacher (class of ’92!) brought me to campus and I instantly fell in love with Dawes House and all of the amazing parts of being a Smithie.

Now the fun stuff.

Who gets the most face time with you?

This time of year, my computer. But really, my amazing housemates and friends.

When was the last time you wore a dress?

Yesterday! I usually either wear a dress of a skirt, I've just recently gotten used to wearing jeans on a regular basis.

What are you reading now?

Right now, I'm reading a couple of things: In Vogue for an art history project, Graziella for my French class, and I'm rereading Eat, Pray, Love for fun!

Do you eat fast food?

Very rarely. When I do it's a splurge!

What do you miss most about home?

My family!

What is your favorite movie?

That's a hard one! Probably My Fair Lady. I love anything with Audrey Hepburn.

If you suddenly had two hours of free time, what would you do?

No homework whatsoever! I'd probably grab a mocha downtown at Woodstar and go have a picnic somewhere on campus.

What is your favorite wall hanging in your room?

The vintage Air France poster hanging over my bed.

Do you consider yourself an urban, suburban or rural person?

Probably suburban. But I'm going to Paris next year, so I'm looking foward to experiencing a big city!

What's your favorite thing about where you grew up?

I love being able to go to the beach whenever I want in the summer. I spent my whole life trying to get out of Maine but now appreciate how beautiful and calm it is.

What annoys the heck out of you?

Not being able to change certain things. Oh, and not having a clean room. It must be the control freak in me!

Who are your role models?

My parents, most Smithies, and Julia Child. Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O for fashion icons.
