Humans of Chico State: Body swap


If you could switch bodies with someone, who would it be?

I would totally want to be Karl Marx. I would really want to get into his head and understand his thought process of all these theories he had. I would totally analyze the world, analyze society and analyze everything that’s around me.

I would be Ellen DeGeneres. She is a great advocate for the LGBTQ community. I love dancing and so does she. She meets a lot of great people, and she’s a great role model.

Timothy Leary, one of the founders of the counterculture movement in the 1960s. I really respect him. He wasn’t afraid to challenge the status quo. He envisioned a world that was far different from the world he lived in. He had a really big impact on the time. The ’60s were a very radical and extreme time. I would give a spectacular speech to college students.

I would be Tyra Banks and instead of having a girl’s modeling show, I would have a men’s modeling show.

I would be Nikola Tesla and create my death laser and conquer the world.
