Face Time: Lily Samuels ’11

Mary Caroline Smith ’11

Emily Brown ’11

Where are you from?
I hail from Cornwall, Connecticut.

What is your major?

Did you always know you wanted to come to Smith?
No, but once I stumbled across the college, I knew the search was over. My new intellectual home had been located.

Now the fun stuff. Who gets the most face time with you?
My boyfriend, Mike, and his son, Jaeden.

Do you have a nickname?
Uh, Lilz? Just kidding. Lily works fine.

What are you reading now?
Sula by Toni Morrison.

Do you eat fast food?
Not if I can help it. That said, there is nothing like a burger from a roadside grill.

What do you miss most about home?
The many well-loved faces.

What is your favorite movie?
The Red Violin.

If you suddenly had two hours of free time, what would you do?
Go for a good, long trek through the woods, preferably coming back with muddy boots.

What is your favorite wall hanging in your room?
An old, horribly romantic, Greek Revival-esque mirror from the flea market.

Do you consider yourself an urban, suburban or rural person?
I'm flexible. Put me somewhere, and I can live there. My heart, however, belongs to the New England countryside.

What's your favorite thing about where you grew up?
The wind racing up the side of the mountain from the valley.

What annoys the heck out of you?
Disingenuous behavior.

Who are your role models?
Former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan. Smith alum Madeleine L'Engle. My father.
