I’m from Northeastern Pennsylvania, and for those of you who are big Office fans, I was born in Scranton. I’m a senior at UC Berkeley and I intend to go to law school after I graduate in 2020 in order to work in Public Law. I also am a state certified Rape Crisis Counselor working with a non-profit called SFWAR.
How will you describe your fashion style?
Honestly, I don’t have too much time to devote to fashion right now so I would default and say ‘athleisure’. However, when I have the time, I love matching sets. I am obsessed with things that fit perfectly together.
Are there any fashion accessories you can’t live without?
I love expensive bags. You can definitely find some Chanel and Prada in my closet. It is definitely my most costly obsession besides espresso.
What is the best compliment you have received?
I recently had a friend tell me what a hard-working ally I am, and that meant the world to me. Having others know how hard I will work, and am currently working, to make the world a better place for queer, POC is my biggest joy in life. Working with non-profits like Oasis for Girls and SFWAR, as well as organizing Bay Area Womxn’s Photography Meetups, brings me so much happiness. Empowering and showcasing all of the amazing women that I have been lucky enough to meet has been such an honor.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a party animal are you?
This answer will disappoint you, but probably a 3 on my wildest of nights. I like to go to a nice bar, have a glass of wine, and go home to my partner. I love drinking with my friends and catching up, but the party scene has never been my favorite. Even at a school, like Berkeley, that has such a huge party culture.
If you could meet with anyone past or present, who will it be?
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Hands down. That woman is 86 years old and still goes to the gym so she can stay fit enough to fight for our rights. Her story and her resolve inspire me immensely. She is exactly the type of bold I aspire to be.
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
Besides spending time with my love and my friends, I love to be at the gym. I weight lift at least four times a week and have been doing so since my senior of high school. I was on the recreational Olympic weightlifting team here at Berkeley and continue to chase those gains. I also play three instruments and sing.
What turns you off on a date?
Oh god, I have spent the last three years single and could write a book on this. Having dated both men and women I think the answer can be summed up as: be kind and respectful to all people you date should they offer you the same. Whether or not it works out, be honest about where you’re at and your intentions with them. Folks who cannot communicate for whatever reason and folks who like to waste my time are my biggest turn-offs.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Rhiannon. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy is a state of mind. Loving who you are and knowing that you deserve the world are the two things that we all should be showing off.
