Q: Why did you decide to come to BYU-Idaho?
A: Well, my dad actually originally went here years and years ago and I was actually born here in town so I already had a connection with the college. Ever since I was really little I just always knew I was suppose to go here and I didn’t even apply to any other colleges.
Q: What do you like most about BYU-Idaho?
A: What struck me just my first couple of days was how helpful everybody here was. They could automatically tell I was lost and didn’t know where I was. Everybody is very outreaching, very helpful, and very caring to one another which I absolutely love, but I also love how in every single class-whether it’s math, history, religion class-there was some kind of religious aspect to each class that you would never expect, and it just makes that class more whole that you thought it could be.

Q: What are you passionate about?
A: I am passionate about a lot of things but mostly about fashion. I have always loved the ability to create something and be able to watch someone wear it and see someone love it. That’s really why I wanted to do a clothing company for IBC this semester. I was able to design one of our dresses and was able to sell it. Seeing girls wearing my product is very fulfilling.

Q: What is the most interesting thing about working at the Crossroads?
A: The cooks in the back. They always play music and jam out back there. It is pretty awesome. The crazy rushes are also very interesting. There are long lines and food all over the place.
Q: How big are the rushes?
A: The rushes are from 12:30-1:15 mostly unless there is a big event. There will be a line of people constantly and we will have a rush of sometimes 50 people at a time.

Q: What makes you want to work with elementary children and help them?
A: I just love children, they are so fun. They have a different perspective on life. I worked as a nanny before and I learned a lot from that.
Q: What are some lessons you have learned from being a nanny and working with children?
A: I have learned a lot of patience and I learned different ways to take care of different kids cause every kid is different. It has taught me a lot of how I am going to raise my kids someday when I become a mom.
-Megan Schwartz, Junior, Psychology
Q: What motivates you to work hard?
A: A desire to be the kind of person that I’m supposed to be. If I’m ever doing something for myself, it’s really hard for me to do it. If I’m doing something because I know other people will be blessed then it’s really easy to sacrifice and do that. So, I think what motivates me to work hard is other people’s happiness.
Q: If there was one thing you could tell the world, what would it be?
A: The purpose of life is to be happy. That’s what we are all looking for right? Happiness. So if we are able to put a smile on our face and look for a person to make their life better then we’re going to be happy and that’s the whole point of everything. Happiness is the key. Compare every choice you make with the happiness level inside of you.

Q: What’s the most valuable thing you bring to students?
A: At classic shine we make it possible for students to drop off their car on the way to class while we do a full detail, and have it completely done by the time they are finished. We even drive students to their class in our golf cart!
Q: How long do you get to be out here?
A: Monday through Friday from 1-6. It gets a little toasty but it’s worth it.
