1. Em totally overuses the phrase "ya know."
"I think nearly every sentence I say ends with "ya know?" …ya know?"
2. If she could travel anywhere for a week, she'd visit Florence, Italy.
"It's been on my bucket list foreeeever."

3. She says that constantly singing the American national anthem with her college roommate was her weirdest habit.
"(It was) just completely unprompted, and we would do it often. In our dorm, walking around campus, at fencing practice, with our friends, etc. But the thing is that it was like… telepathic—we wouldn't plan it, we would just know when to start singing it with harmonies to boot. There was also no intention of having particularly patriotic moments, but hey."
4. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel inspired her to want to live in the '50s.
"It seems like Midge, the protagonist, is having a good time. Also, there was no social media and I'd be so curious to live in a society without it!"
5. Em is a total night owl.
"I like the feeling of being productive while everyone else is sleeping."
6. She says there are way too many yummy desserts for her to choose a favorite.
"My recent obsession is künefe, which is a Turkish dessert with sweet syrupy noodle things and warm cheese. So good, and much better than I just made it sound."
7. She's a big fan of olives and cow milk.
"Not together though, yikes."
8. Her go-to Starbucks drink is an iced matcha latte or a caramel frappuccino.
"I mix it up to keep things exciting."
9. Not everyone may know about Em's championship-worthy fencing skills.
"I started when I was 8 and have been competing since I was 12. I also did NCAA fencing and competed in the NCAA Championships (kind of like the March Madness of fencing, but with fairly empty bleacher stands) twice."
10. Em thinks it's important to have a sense of humor about life.
"I try to not take things too seriously, because while external things are often out of our control, we can choose how to respond to them. It's a dance through your depression/anxiety sorta situation."
