Meet Myra

Hometown: Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island, WA

Education: Oak Harbor High School; Seattle Pacific University (BA, Communication Studies; minor in Theatre)

Favorite Seattle Restaurant: The Matador in Ballard (order the Texas-Size Nachos), and any place that serves phad thai.

A trip I’d like to take: I’d like to take a trip to the Netherlands, learn more about my Dutch roots, and eat stroopwafels and oliebollen. I’d also like to visit Venice, Italy, and New Orleans.

Family: My parents and my older sister, who is also an SPU alum!

Books reading now: Netflix

Favorite Movie: The Lord of the Rings

Favorite thing about SPU: SPU Theatre! I spent more time in McKinley Hall than my own residence, and found an amazing community and family there. Go see a show!

Hobbies & Fun Facts: I love film and theatre. My favorite part of the DVD is the special features, because I can talk for days about filmmaking. I also like to play tennis and visit the otters at the Seattle Aquarium. Someday, I want to go cage diving with sharks.
