Get to Know Our Newest Intern: Nicole Roberts

Nicole was born in Troy, Michigan. She likes reading, writing and binge watching Netflix. Nicole, like other Centigraders, can't people who don't use their turn signals while driving. She also dislikes unflavored water and the Oxford comma.

And here are some of her responses to our questions:

What was your most embarrassing moment?

Every day is filled with embarrassing moments. There isn’t one that specifically stands out because they all blend together. 

Sporting achievements?

I’m the least athletic person you will ever meet. When I was in the fifth grade, our softball team lost every game except one because the other team didn’t show up. 

Favorite Group/band/church

Coldplay

Name a singer that you can’t stand the sound of

Nickelback 

If you could get free airfare – name a country you would visit and why.

England. Ever since I started reading the Harry Potter series in the second grade, I’ve wanted to go. 

Ever met anybody famous before?

Ed Sheeran. It was amazing. 

What’s your favorite things to do on a Saturday night?

Either go out to eat with my friends or stay in and watch movies with my cat, Maurice. 

Have you been told, you look like someone famous?

No. I’m anxiously awaiting the day it happens though. 

What's the one thing you can't live without?

My CMU (Central Michigan University) family. I wouldn’t be half the person I am without my fellow Chippewa’s.  

If you could have an unlimited storage of one thing, what would it be?

Photos. I take way too many and never have enough space. It’s a real struggle. 

If you were given $1,000, where would you spend it? 

I would want to spend it at TJ Maxx, but realistically I would pay off some of my student loans with it. Thanks, CMU. 

What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list?

I want to travel outside of the United States. I’ve never been out of the country and I would love to experience different cultures around the world.
