HUMAN: Monica Nixon (“Nixon like the president, and Monica like Lewinsky. I have a very political name”), 4th-year Molecular Biology and Religious Studies student at UGA

SHE SAID IT: “Anywhere in the world… Hmm. That’s a hard one. In a perfect world, it would probably be somewhere in the Middle East, which sounds a little weird with the way things are, but I’ve always wanted to visit, like, Tehran or something. My minor is religious studies, so I’m really interested in the culture and the history there.”
