Kyle’s Bio

Your major: Media Studies and Journalism

Your hometown: Salt Lake City

Where do you live now? Salt Lake City

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about my education. I love learning new things during my major studies, such as how to be a proper journalist and how to be a DJ. I am also very passionate about the music I listen to and the sports teams I follow.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? COMM1130, COMM2400, and COMM1560

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? Tom Holland I guess, I don’t really know if there’s an actor that I look like.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I see myself graduated with my Bachelor’s degree and either working as a journalist, radio show host, or anything else to do with the media industry. But I’m always up for a surprise and will find a way to adapt to whatever I face.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? My superpower probably would be the ability to shoot webs and climb walls like Spider-Man. He was always my favorite superhero growing up and I always thought I could have a lot of fun with his powers.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I have 2 tattoos and I want to get more. Not many people know this because they are often hidden under my clothes, and when they do see them they are pretty surprised.

Kyle’s Favorites

Favorite musicians and/or artists: Either Chance The Rapper, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar or Drake. These are probably my top favorites but there are a lot more that I listen to.

Favorite TV shows and/or movies: My favorite movies are probably the Planet of the Apes series. I’ve watched them many times and usually find out something I didn’t know during the previous times watching.

Favorite sports or sports teams: I love basketball and football, and have started to get into soccer in recent years. My favorite teams are the Utah Jazz, Utah Utes, Minnesota Vikings, Real Salt Lake, and Manchester United.

Favorite food: I really like Mexican and Italian food, but I’ll usually give anything a chance.

What’s your favorite place to eat? My favorite place to eat would probably be either Olive Garden or Lorena’s Mexican Restaurant. These are my top choices when going out to eat.

What was your favorite cereal as a kid? My favorite cereal as a kid was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. We used to go through boxes very often and I always wanted more.
