Fun Interesting facts:

• I have two children- apparently I look young and like I don’t have children... whatever that means

• I have a phobia of fish. Like run away and cry phobia. I’m sure there’s a word for that but I’ve always been too lazy to look it up.

• I’m educated. I am currently in school making my way towards a biology degree which will bring me towards a doctorate in Pathology.

• I’m extremely sensitive. I have a ‘badass’ exterior according to others and can be a bitch... but I over analyze pretty much everything and tend to think I’m automatically disliked by people so I try harder to gain someone’s like through forcing myself to have interest in what people say.

Favorite quote: “In the years since, I’ve inquired what became of the brothers Poe. One followed his father into the world of banking. The other lives in a cave and talks to sheep. They each think the other has it better.”

How would close friends and family describe you?: Upon asking my husband how he’d described me he answered: Quirky, short-tempered, manipulative, obsessive, dorky, and weird. (I didn’t tell him why I asked)

What is your strategy going into the game? Honestly, though I do have an abrasive personality, I’ve watched sequester to know that it’s not necessarily the winning quality needed for a game. I plan on finding a close knit group and letting them know that they NEED me just as much as I NEED them to succeed in the game. Paranoia plays wonders and I plan on using it to further myself. I think I want to take an honesty route as it will serve better come the voting portion of the game, but I honestly lie sometimes just to lie to get my way so I can see myself starting rumors to create targets over myself.

What type of personalities would you describe as opposite of yours? The girl next door, quiet humble type. I’m a mess. People who have the ability to act like they love everyone and everything all the time are my opposites. I personally find them bland so, I’ll stick with who I am.

Favorite Sequester player: This is a hard question as I actually Stan a lot of the casting for both seasons (I know looks like floater shot but I’m just an obsessive fan lmao). I suppose I’ll go with Ceejae as she was able to prove herself as a threat and avoided battle matches due to that. I mean I totally have a crush on her but that’s beside the point. Her game of laying low but attaching herself to people that made themselves noticeable was well thought out.

What would you say your biggest weakness is in a game like Sequester? Honestly, being around that many people. I do have a short temper, I don’t like socializing in situations I can’t see myself out of. However, as this world requires interactions with other humans, I’ve become great at making it appear like I enjoy people.

What do you think is the most common mistake that people make in a game like this? Not trying or trying too hard. The ones who look like they are there for fun but there for an actual game. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the players who come in balls to the wall and get targeted just for their ability for spearheading moves that people know could cost them a win so they turn eventually.
