Our “Meet the Intern” series is back and featuring Nicole Keratsopoulos! Nicole is the Events and Servicing Intern here at the Bryan College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau. Read below to learn about her Disney themed home and which Netflix show character she would be for a day!
-Where are you from and what is your hometown known for?
I’m from Cameron, Texas and we are best known for our high school football team. We even had a feature on the NFL Network on Super Bowl Live about our town and our football team.
-What is the most interesting thing about yourself?
The most interesting thing about myself is that I have to been to Disney World/Disneyland at least 20 times. My family goes there every year and our house is even Disney themed!
-If you could travel to any place in the world where would it be and why?
I have been to Greece before and I would love to go back. As you can probably tell from my name, my family is Greek so I would love to get to experience the culture again and learn more about where my family is from.
-What is a memory you have of Texas A&M that makes you laugh the hardest?
In high school I made straight A’s, so naturally I thought that I would be able to do the same in college. I remember getting my grades back after the first round of tests my first semester and having a meltdown over my grades. I called my mom crying because I thought it was the end of the world. As a senior, I’m glad that I can look back on that time and laugh because while grades are important, they don’t define who you are and they definitely shouldn’t be something to cry over.
-If you could trade lives with one celebrity for a day, who would it be and what would you do?
I think I would trade lives with Khloe Kardashian. I would love to get my hair, makeup, and nails done by her glam squad and dressed by her stylist. While the Kardashians may not have the best reputation, it would definitely be fun to get to live in their shoes for at least a day.
-What do you want to do/be after you graduate?
I hope to find a job in the event planning industry. I would love to plan events and weddings.
-If you could only eat at one place in Bryan College Station for the rest of your life, what restaurant would it be and what would you order?
It would definitely be Fuego. I get a Southern Comfort with no onions and a large Dr. Pepper. I would eat that every day if I could…
-If you had to pick a song that described you best, what song would it be?
I wasn’t sure about this one, so I took a quiz and it said “How to Save a Life” by The Fray. I’m not sure if this is fitting though because every time I hear this song now, I tend to cry. Thanks for scarring me for life, Grey’s Anatomy…
-If you woke up in your favorite Netflix shows world, what episode would it be and which character are you?
I would want to be Olivia Pope from Scandal, no questions asked. She is such a girl boss. I don’t have a specific episode in mind because she is seriously amazing in all of them. She’s a fixer, she fixes things.
-If you could have any superpower, what would it be and what would you do with it?
Mind reading. I always wonder what people are thinking, so that makes the most sense.
-You just won the Powerball! What is the first thing you buy with your $245 million?
I would buy homes for myself, my parents, and grandparents. Then I would buy 10 more dogs.
-What quote best describes how your week is going so far?
Just keep swimming…With tests, quizzes, and papers due, I’m extremely overwhelmed. But I just have to remember to keep pushing because in 3 months I will be graduating from the best university in the world! Whoop!
That’s a wrap of our new interns for the spring! Stay tuned for more fun posts as we finish out the semester and more interns in the summer.
