Name: Mary Safranski
Hometown: Neenah, WI
Favorite thing about the Fox Cities: I will always have a soft spot for Kimberly Point in Neenah, its gorgeous year-round and still one of my favorite places to run.
Favorite Quote? I have many, but there is something about Dr. Suess quotes that I’ve always loved.
Favorite Book? Right now I would have to say The Decameron.
Biggest Guilty Pleasure? Dancing like no one is watching (quite literally, usually to Beyonce)
Most played song on your iPod? Well, my iPod may have broken due to an unexpected downpour while I was running, but I would say something by Mike Viola.
If you could have any super power, what would it be? Time Travel
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be? I would really love to meet David Brooks.
What do you hope to do after this internship? After I graduate I would like to either spend more time abroad or else I would love to continue going to school and eventually become a professor.
What’s your dream job? Working as a journalist for NPR or the NYT.
Write your memoir in six words: A 22 year olds mid-life crisis
At what age did you consider yourself an adult? I might have to say N/A for this question, except that I do think I have an old soul.
Hidden talents? I can crochet crooked hats and play four cords (so far!) on the Ukulele.
One interesting fact: I consider myself an Italophile.
