Paige at the beach

Meet Paige Tibbits, a senior from the University of Michigan, who has undertaken her longest trip ever away from home to spend a semester at the University of Hawai‘i. Paige answers some of our questions about school, herself, and life here in Hawai‘i.

Hometown: Onaway, Michigan — a small, rural city with a population of about 1,000.

Favorite UH class: Immunology – this class has the most interesting material.

Favorite spot on campus: Sinclair Library because it’s open 24/7. It’s my favorite place to study.

Dream Job: Neurosurgeon or neurologist.

Proudest accomplishment: Last year I had a 4.0 for the entire year while working 35 hours a week.

What’s on your iPod? I like everything but don’t have much time these days to investigate new music. I got into country music in college, and I’ve always liked classic rock and was into Screamo for a while.

What one word would you use to describe yourself: Genuine

What one word would your friends use to describe you: Dedicated. Everyone knows I’m devoted to school, my job, and everything that I undertake.

What’s your greatest vice? I want to be adventurous, but my fear gets in the way. For instance, I want to go skydiving or cliff jumping, but my fear stops me from doing it!

Favorite book: Hmmm, well, I read 50 Shades of Grey on the way to the airport. I had the time, so I thought I would go ahead and read it.

Favorite TV show: Sons of Anarchy, the motorcycle gang show.

The reality show I’d go on: I’m not sure, but maybe some dancing reality show where they teach people with no coordination how to dance!

If a movie were made about me, I’d want this actress to play me: Zoe Deschanal

Favorite place in Hawai‘i: I haven’t been here too long, but so far I’d say Kailua and Lanikai. They are pretty places with a relaxed, fun atmosphere and beautiful beaches and mountains. They both radiate the Hawaiian feel you see on tv.

Favorite local food: Spicy ahi maki and manapua.

Favorite thing to do in Hawai‘i: Explore! I don’t like to sit still. I like to get out and go!
