Otherworldly: Ancient Egypt

Leah Mitchell

Meet Cleo! She went to my high school and we were pretty close until she moved away the summer before our junior year. She lives in New Zealand now, but we still stay in touch through video-chat. She’s an active feminist, but she contradicts the stereotype through her love of some more traditionally feminine obsessions, including shoes, fashion, and things that sparkle. She wants to be a paleontologist, but, for now, works at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Her favorite color is purple, and she exclusively wears gold or glass jewelry. Cleo loves admiring statues, and, while at home, she likes to sculpt animals in her sunny backyard (most of them are modeled after her cat). Hang on, she’s Skyping me right now… thanks for tuning in!
