What are some of your hobbies and interests?  I like animals, Sudoku and tea, as well candles, hiking, flowers, and ice cream cake. My hobbies include being a grandpa, doing hydrology, watching frozen planet, listening to French music, and pretending to be French even though I am Italian.

Beach or mountains?  Yes.

What will you be famous for one day? In order from most to least likely: being the sister of the extremely talented Emilia Torello, owning the most vintage French CDs, being the youngest glacier tour guide in Iceland, or being Jane Goodall's adopted child. I will keep you posted.

Favorite movie of all time? The Breakfast Club or any Jurassic Park movie. Any of them. At all. Ever.

If you were a superhero, what would your power be and what would you be called?  I would be called Tupperwoman and I would have access to all of the world's finest tupperware at the snap of my fingers. I love tupperware.

What is your favorite place in all of Chapel Hill? At a picnic table on the 4th floor outdoor patio of Murray/Venable Hall (the Marine Science dept)

What decade were you supposed to be born in?  Geek out moment - this one. Our generation is going to experience some seriously frightening global change regarding the Earth's oceans and climate, and I am determined to make sure we do everything we can to preserve this beautiful, beautiful planet.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?  My sister, Emilia. Also, ice cream.

What’s your favorite thing about UNC? UNC is the best school in the universe and I love that everyone on this campus believes that just as much as I do.

If you weren’t at Loreleis practice every Wednesday night, what would you be doing?  Quite literally, I would be watching Survivor on CBS every Wednesday at 8pm. Now I watch it online the next day. #dedication
