Lauren Hawkinson

Sophomore P.J McCrea can bend his knee to make a 180-degree angle.

Where do you want to be in 15 years?
“Ideally I would like to have a degree and work in a STEM field. I would like to be starting a family, but maybe that happens a little later.”

What talent do you find unique or important to you?
“I mean this is not a talent, but I can bend my knee to make a 180-degree angle.” (PJ showed me his talent for proof…it looked like it hurt, but I was very impressed!)

Describe your childhood in 4 words.
“Fun. Silly. Sports. Friends.”

Who is your hero, and why?
“I guess historically, my hero is Winston Churchill. The fact that the allied forces were losing during WW2 and he came in and turned things around. He didn’t care what people thought of him, he just got stuff done.”

What is an item you bring with you everywhere, besides a cell phone?
“I bring my wallet with me everywhere.”

What makes you laugh?
“I would have to say my friends. I always love a good one-liner or random jokes someone makes.”

Are you someone that wants someone to spoil the end of a show or movie for you?
“No, I do not want a show or movie to be spoiled for me. I would not be mad if someone did; however, it is more enjoyable to find out myself.”

What is your least favorite fast-food chain, and why? What fast-food chain is your favorite?
“My least favorite would be Burger King…just some bad memories of making me sick. My favorite would have to be Arby’s; definitely their chicken sandwich!”
