The Utah Statesman interviewed Jean Maxwell, a freshman majoring in biochemistry from Bancroft, Idaho.
Utah Statesman: Who is someone you look up to?
Jean Maxwell: Probably my dad would be the one person that I could name. He’s pretty cool. He’s an engineer, so he’s super smart.
US: What is your favorite quote or advice you’ve ever been given?
JM: Oh dear, that’s hard; probably that Plato quote, “You are what you repeatedly do.” I think that’s pretty good advice as far as life is concerned.
US: What is something that’s embarrassing you’ve either done or witnessed this year?
JM: I can’t really think of anything more embarrassing than normal that I’ve done, but I’ve watched someone slip on the ice like four times in front of our — it was sad, but it was also kind of funny — but there’s this dangerous patch of ice right in front of our door.
US: Who is your favorite superhero?
JM: Batman, definitely, because he’s not really a superhero. He’s just a tech genius, so smart people for the win.
US: What do you want to accomplish in life?
