Senior, Amy Flanagan, takes a seat in the hot seat.

What are your plans for next year?

“I am deciding between Dayton and Miami (University in Ohio) and I want to major in education. I have always liked working with kids and stuff so I figured it would be fun to teach them too.”

What are you looking forward to most in college?

“Probably just seeing new things because I’m going out of state and get to see other people and meet new people from all over the country.”

What is the reason that you bring treats for everyone so often?

“I think it is just so fun to make people happy. Sophomore year, I brought cookies to school because I thought I needed them for something but I didn’t. So, I just handed them out to people in the hallway and was like, ‘This is kinda fun,’ so I kept doing it.”

If you could change one thing about your life what would it be?

“Umm…I’d probably have a mermaid tail and live in the ocean.  I sewed myself a mermaid tail and it was really fun swimming in it, but I had to take it off eventually.”

If you could be in one Netflix show, what show would you be in and what character would you be?

“I know a lot of people say they wouldn’t want to be in it, but I would be in ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and I would probably be Cristina Yang. She’s brilliant.  And I love the drama every day, like, I live for that.”

What is one piece of advice that you would give to a freshman now that your senior year is almost over?

“I would say join activities and stuff because I didn’t join any my freshman year and I would have to say that was my worst high school year. Then sophomore year I joined a ton of stuff and I loved it.”

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

“Ireland just because I feel like it is really fun.  And I would take a bunch of leprechaun jumping pics.”

What is something no one knows about you?

“I worked at Jimmy John’s for four days.  Then I quit because my manager was really scary, and it was rough. I made a script and typed it up when I quit and read the entire thing over the phone.”
