Samantha Jaikins is our October World’s Best Person. She joined us as a media traffic coordinator and has recently moved to an internal creative traffic position. Rarely does someone embrace a new position with such fervor and optimism, but Sam has owned her new role and embraced her new responsibilities. It obviously hasn’t gone unnoticed, because she received some fantastic nominations from the staff. Congrats Sam! Now onto your 5 obnoxious questions…
Q: If you could have any kind of pet in the world (lets pretend space or size was not an issue), what kind of pet would you choose and why?
T-Rex! My T-Rex would be a giant cuddle bug, but also a badass when need be. I feel like the T-Rex is seen as a giant angry animal, but the last Jurassic Park movie showed them to be sweet and understanding.
Q: What was the last song you had stuck in your head?
Shut up and Dance, which is shocking since I typically only listen to country music. Shut up and Dance is very catchy and I always end up dancing in the car.
Q: What is the best breakfast cereal ever?
Honey Bunches of Oats. Every time you take a bite there is a new fun crunchy flavor.
Q: What is a weird food combination that you enjoy, but other people find strange?
Fried Pickles with Peanut Butter as a dipping sauce. Don’t knock it till ya try it! Its a North Dakota thing.
Q: What are you looking forward to most this Holiday season?
I am looking forward to spending the holidays with my family. This will be the first Thanksgiving in 6 years that i will be celebrating with a family member. Last year I was Elk Hunting in Montana [Ed note: I know, right?]. Also, on Christmas morning, I love seeing my niece and nephews going crazy with excitement from Santa.
