About Ilissa

Hometown: Pueblo, CO

Undergraduate Institution: UNC

Hobbies & Interests: Watching movies, painting, coloring, singing, strolling, and going on tiny adventures.

Favorite thing about UNC: I never had to pretend to be someone I wasn’t, while on campus. Everyone I met accepted me as I was, and helped me grow on my terms.

Favorite Place on Campus: I love the main doors going into Ross Hall. When they open, a little blast of air shoots toward you and you feel like a movie star at a photo shoot.

Favorite Place to Eat in Greeley: Greeley has wonderful restaurants! I simply cannot pick one. Some of my favorites are: Roma Pizza, Café Mexicali, Alberto’s, Palomino’s, and The Kress (If I want to see a movie while I eat).

Little Known Fact About Me: I want to be Miss Marple when I grow up! She is a delightful character in some of Agatha Christie’s novels. If you would rather watch television than read, I suggest watching the Miss Marple series starring Geraldine McEwan.

My Advice to You: Ask questions! I grew up shy and asking questions was intimidating, but the friendly atmosphere at UNC made me feel comfortable enough to ask for help.
