What's your favorite whale?
Tell me something you did that you're proud of.
I chose to turn down private sector money to work on PreProBono.
What was the hardest thing you've ever done?
Watch Star Wars Episode 1 all the way through for the second time.
What song are you embarrassed to have on your iPod?
Beat Dat Beat' by DJ Pauly D. Jersey Shore. Maybe I'm a guido at heart? Except I hate tanning, so that can't be it.
Who do you want to help with your law degree?
I always wanted to battle it out in impact litigation. If I ever have to go back to the private sector, I think it'd either be on behalf of victims of discrimination or the economic underclass. The latter would probably have to take place in a policy arena, though.
If you were a Jedi, which one would you be?
Obi Wan, of course.
What's your talent?
Picking up new ideas and concepts quickly. How else do you think I got through 7 years of higher education without ever going to class?
What were you in your past life?
Probably a Panda. I sit around and eat a lot. I would have answered sloth, but they live in trees, and forget climbing those things.
If you could dream an animal into existence to keep as a pet, what would it be?
I don't think I'd want a pet. Instead, I'd just make Goofy (the Disney character) exist in real life and be his pal.
