Mia Saracusa, program coordinator and Staff Committee representative
Q: Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?
A: Taylor Swift. I would love to talk to her about her life and career.
Q: Would you like to be famous? In what way?
A: I don’t think I would like to be famous. I would not want the added pressure of being in the spotlight and the lack of normalcy in my life.
Q: If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?
A: To make time go by slower! I always feel like the days go by too fast and I don’t have enough time for everything I want to do.
Q: What are the films or television series that you’ve been watching?
A: My two go-to shows are “Gilmore Girls” and “Brooklyn 99.”
Q: What do you appreciate most in a coworker?
A: Someone who is willing to help out when things get busy, and support you when needed. The other staff members in my department are always there to help; they are the best coworkers I could ask for!
Q: What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned in the last six months?
A: About six months ago I moved to Colorado and started working at DU. During this time I have learned a lot about adapting to change and letting go of the little things.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about DU?
A: The beautiful campus. I love taking a walk around on a warm afternoon.
Q: What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?
A: A perfect day for me would include sleeping in, spending time with my friends and family and baking a new recipe.
