For this week’s classmate conversation, I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Courtney Sakuma. She’s a third year Civil Engineering major, who would like to go into structural engineering. Courtney is from Long Beach and enjoys reading, running, watching Netflix, and eating. She especially loves to eat Asian, like ramen, sushi, and Korean Barbeque, and Mexican food. Courtney is Japanese, and has not visited Japan since she was twelve years old. She has a younger brother, and he is currently a first year at CSULB. Courtney went to Cypress High School, and chose to go to CSULB because it is close and cheaper than going to school up north or out of the state. I asked her if she is a dog or cat person, and she answered saying that she prefers dogs over cats since she is essentially allergic to cats. Courtney would like to have a dog, but he mom does not particularly like them. Besides dogs, Courtney likes the show Friends, and has recently become obsessed with the show Criminal Minds. In ten years, she hopes to have a full time job and her own place.
Regarding the question of the day, which revolved around tattoos, Courtney said that she does consider tattoos to be art. She also thinks that it would be cooler if one helps design his or her tattoo, but, at the same time, it is fine for that same person to pick the design from a book. As for her getting a tattoo, Courtney admits that she probably will not get one since she is afraid of needles, does not know what to get.
It was really cool meeting Courtney, and I hope I get to talk to her more in the future! To see what she is up to, click the link! https://courtneysakuma.wordpress.com/
