Q: How did you end up in Colorado?
Emma: My dad went to CU and showed my older sister, Maddy, the university. I spent my high school years visiting Maddy at CU and couldn’t wait to join her out in Colorado. When the time came, I visited at least 20 colleges to try to give others a chance, but I couldn’t see myself anywhere other than Boulder. I miss Chicago for sure, but couldn’t be happier out here in colorful Colorado.
Dani: I grew up in Seattle, and I have family who lived here in Colorado at the time. When my family moved to Pennsylvania, I knew I wanted to end up back out west. I tried going to Penn State for a year, but ultimately decided it wasn’t for me. I looked at schools in Colorado and fell in love with Boulder immediately.
Q: What’s your favorite type of music?
Emma: COUNTRY MUSIC. I love all types of music but country music definitely puts me in such a great mood and is so much fun to sing along to, whether it’s live or on the car stereo. My happy place is country music festivals. Favorites right now: Randy Houser, Jason Aldean, Jon Pardi, and Luke Combs. (Christmas music has to be an easy runner up, you can catch me playing Charlie Brown Christmas in the middle of July)
Dani: I have such a hard time choosing my favorite type of music. There’s a special place in my heart for early 2000s pop punk songs from bands like Blink 182, Fall Out Boy and All Time Low. I also jam to whatever pop songs come on my car radio–Taylor Swift, anyone?
Q: What’s your favorite candle scent?
Dani: Fresh Balsam from Bath and Body Works. I light that candle at all times of the year, even though it smells like Christmas.
Q: What are your favorite restaurants?
Emma: P.F. Changs, guilty. Pasta Jay’s also has my heart. Also a sucker for a Friday night Chick-Fil-a run.
Dani: Anything on Pearl Street in Boulder. I could seriously eat my way through that town. I’m also a sucker for Olive Garden. Their breadsticks are amazing. Oh wait, and Chick-Fil-A, like Emma said.
Q: What’s next for you?
Emma: Holy moly, I don’t know… graduating in May and then I’m being thrown into the real world like a baby bird being tossed out of the dang nest. I am very excited, though, to see where I end up. My sister just moved to Denver so I could definitely see myself staying in the area for a bit after graduating, but I’m really ready to go wherever the wind takes me!
Dani: That’s a tough one… I’m in my last semester of college, so I guess graduating in December is up next. After that, I have absolutely no idea! I’d love to work at an agency, but the list of places I’d like to go is huge. Stay tuned, time will tell where I end up.
