(Described by Tommy): mustache (because it is real), indecisive, charmer, crowd-surf, and pretty-boy
13. What makes you a good teammate?
I think I’m very supportive of my team members, I like to think that I make teammates around me better by pushing them to do better and pick them up instead of putting them down. I also make fun of them when needed.
14. What are your academic goals?
Go to class, graduate, leave here with a degree
15. What was the first sport you ever played?
16. What is your ideal date?
Not around as many people as Tommy, probably picking my date up in a jeep with no doors, driving way out where no one is to a beach, with a blanket and a bottle of wine, just me and bae. And then probably end up with the SQUAD.
17. Who inspires you?
Points to Tommy (then says no). My mom because she’s been through a lot and having to hold everything together. She’s taught me that you can get through anything if you really want to.
18. What is your favourite thing about being a Raven?
The support, considering how big our student body is, the real sense of the Carleton family and you have a connection with everyone whether they be alumni or students. There’s a real sense of belonging.
19. If you were going to trade places with any celebrity, who would it be?
Cam Newton because he’s a G and a baller. He’s the perfect quarterback. And Leo DiCaprio because he’s the greatest actor of all time.
20. Who is your favourite musical artist?
I really like Kanye right now (and Beyoncé)
21. What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
Jeep with no doors so I can take bae on my ideal date. Honestly though, probably a boat.
22. What is your favourite Disney movie?
Lion King, greatest movie of all time
23. With panda game coming up, what do you want to say to all the student fans?
Come out and support us, because it’s not just about CU and uO, it’s about carrying on the tradition. We’re not gonna let you guys down, we’re gonna bring Pedro home and he’s gonna stay here for a while. Wear your colours (including your #FreePedro shirt) and go crazy because it only happens once a year.
