Ten totally random questions with…

Chelsea Woods

1. If you could have coffee with any one person, alive or dead, who would it be?Robert Hansen. Ever since I watched the movie “Breach,” I’ve been inspired by the Robert Hansen case within the FBI. I’d love to know why he sold all of the U.S. secrets to the Soviets and how he was able to accomplish such a feat without the detection of the FBI, CIA or any other three-letter department for such a long time. 2. How do you like working on the McCain campaign?I really like it. It’s incredibly interesting to see how a campaign is conducted without waiting to hear the feedback through the media. I make recruitment calls, conduct polling and travel to the different regional offices. As a political science major, it’s great to experience politics first-hand.

3. Skydiving or bungee jumping?Skydiving. The song “Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw has been stuck in my head for the longest time. I’d really love to try it, although I wonder if I’d wimp out right before the jump.

4. San Francisco or New York City?San Francisco. I’ve never been to the West Coast – let alone California – and I really want to see the Golden Gate Bridge.

5. What’s your favorite class this semester?Delinquency Prevention with Dr. Allison Payne. It’s completely different from any of my other classes, and it incorporates my SLC service. The class is interesting and enlightening, and Dr. Payne has really been able to open up the subject matter and make class engaging and fun.

6. If you could switch places with any Olympic athlete, who would it be?Michael Phelps’ teammate, Jason Lezak, in the 4×100[-meter] free[style] relay. He was the one who anchored the relay and caught the team up from behind, winning Michael Phelps his eighth medal. I’d like to be able to be that good at swimming and to know Phelps. The dude’s amazing.

7. What was the last thing you listened to on your iPod?”Feels Like Today” by Rascal Flatts. It relaxes me and gives me perspective on life. After listening, I’m ready to go tackle something new.

8. What’s your favorite service experience?St. Frances Inn. I’ve gone there since high school. I love interacting with the guests and hearing their stories. I was there once on Valentine’s Day and learned some of the best pickup lines. 9. What is one question you want to ask God when you get to Heaven?Did I make a difference?

10. What was your summer job?I worked at Archmere Academy, my high school, in the Office of Institutional Advancement. I did mailings, maintained the database and got everyone lunch everyday. I really liked working there.
