5 Minutes with… Mika Fooksa ’14

How are you today?


Favorite year?

2003? Whenever I was in 5th grade.

If you could only eat one thing for the

rest of your life, what would it be?

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

What’s the last adventure you went on?

Well, Saturday was interesting. I was at a house and decided to come back to my room. So I started walking in what I thought was the right direction, but really had no idea where I was. All of a sudden, I’m at an elementary school and there’s a fence in my way, so natu­rally I climb it and, naturally, hurl my body over and land in the field on the other side. I decided to keep going in that direction, so I sprint across the field and end up at a river. It was a little wide, so I tested the waters a bit; I had to run up and down the river to try to find a narrow spot. Then I tried to ford the river. I fell in a little bit, decided I was going the wrong direction, sprinted back across the field and ended up in some parking lot. So then, I called my friend to MapQuest it for me – she informed me I was at school.

What did you do over the summer?

I really didn’t do anything. I made some ketchup, did some traveling, worked some. Went to CMA Country Music Festival in Tennessee, which was awesome.
