What TV or Movie characters best exemplifies you and why? 

Shosanna from Inglourious Bastards – she's smart and strong.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

Starbucks.

Funniest Walker Sands moment?

At the lip sync competition, our music wouldn't turn on, so I started singing Jingle Bell Rock (Mean Girls style) and everyone joined in. It was awesome.
