Person of Interest – Gina Wei

Senior Gina Wei said she is a lover of all muffin types, a creative writing fanatic and a “go- with-the-flow” kind of girl.

What’s a special talent of yours?

“I really like to write, and I probably wouldn’t be so interested or passionate about it if people hadn’t pointed out that I was good at it when I was little, …so I got this impression that maybe I’m good at this.”

What do you want to be remembered for your senior year by your classmates?

“[I want to be remembered as] someone who…stood out without consciously trying.”

What’s one thing you can’t do but wish you could?

“Ride a bike. I never learned how to ride a bike. My boyfriend promises me that we’re going to go to Wal-Mart and he’s going to teach me in the aisles.”

Describe yourself in one word or phrase.

“Marginally original because my name is in both of those words.”

What’s your motto to live by?

“There’s this one quote by Regina Spektor, ‘None of it is part of a bigger plan, maybe I’m on a series of tangents the rest of my life.’ So, I guess she’s saying that not everything you do has to have this bigger purpose, you just have to go with whatever at the moment because that will lead you to where you’re supposed to be.”
