Why did you choose to attend The University of Texas at Austin?

I knew I wanted to stay in Texas for school, and that I also wanted to go to the best school in Texas, and for me that was The University of Texas at Austin. No question.

What’s your dream job after graduation?

I am in school to become an Architect, and honestly that is my dream job.

If you could travel to one spot anywhere in the world, where would you want to visit?

This is a really tough question because there are so many places on my list to go, but if I had to choose one I would say Germany. The architecture there is pretty amazing right now, and I would love to check it out.

What music are you listening to?

I am listening to mixture of a lot of stuff right now, from Adele to rap to 90’s music to Michael Jackson. I am kind of all over the place

What are your favorite Web sites? Why?

I like to to keep up with the current news, to keep up with friends, to watch the shows that I miss while I am in class, and so I can keep up with the social gossip.

What’s your pick: Tex-Mex or Texas barbecue?

Tex-Mex, forever and always.

Where are your favorite places to go in Austin?

What are your favorite things to do in Austin? I really like Barton Springs, and the south Lamar area. I also like to go to the Green Belt; it’s so gorgeous. Also, I really like to go downtown with my friends whether its to get a few drinks or check out interesting events that are going on.

What are your favorite academic subjects?

What are you interested in studying in the future? I have always really enjoyed math and history. If I were to come back to school in the future I would probably study history, I have always been really interested in the story involved with events, paintings, buildings and all the other wonderful things involved with history.

What tip would you give to someone new to the UT campus?

I think the most important thing to get involved in whatever interests you. UT provides so many opportunities to explore the many options in life, so take advantage!

Tell us a little about your family:

I have the modern family. My mom and dad divorced when I was 6 and my brother was 8. Then my dad remarried when I was 10 to my stepmom who had a 4-year-old son. Then about four months later my mom had my sister with my sister’s dad. So at this point in my life I had an older brother and younger stepbrother and a younger half sister. My mom married my stepdad about four years after my sister was born. Though my family has grown from separation, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I feel very blessed to have these wonderful additions in my family.

What are your favorite free-time activities?

In my free time, I love to hang out with my friends, read, watch movies, swim and watch sports.

Name one interesting or quirky thing about yourself:

I have my motorcycle license and I ride a scooter to school.

Hi Vikki – What was your high school background? Do you think you did anything in high school to convince UT to accept you into the architect program? I’m trying to help a high school student from The Woodlands figure out how she can become accepted into your program. Thanks in advance for any information!
