Natasha Harold

  • What is your name, job title and major?

  • How long have you worked for A.S.?

  • Anything with peanut butter and chocolate. I have an obsession with both peanut butter and chocolate so when they are paired I have no self-control.

  • Which three people (living or dead) you would like to have dinner with?
  • Winston Churchill because I am fascinated with British politics and think he is one of the most influential politicians in history!

    Julie Andrews since the “Sound of Music” is my favorite movie and I would like to hear her stories on growing up in Hollywood and staying away from a big scandal even though she lost her voice. 

    Michael Phelps because he is the best Olympian in history and I think it would be fun to talk about what happens at the Olympics from an athlete’s perspective.

  • What city would you most like to visit or visit again?
  • I would love to visit Chicago because my sister lives there! It is my favorite city in the world to visit in the summer and it’s such a young, lively city!

  • I would like to meet Heath Ledger since he was such an amazing actor and unfortunately passed too soon.

  • What is your favorite book?
  • My favorite book is “Message in a Bottle” by Nicholas Sparks. I worked at a pool a couple years ago and would read books to pass time and it is the only book, to this day, to ever make me cry.

  • Do you like to cook and what is your specialty?
  • I LOVE to cook! My specialty is probably steak since my dad works in the food industry, but I prefer to bake donuts.

  • “Most people don’t know that I like to…”

  • Is your favorite part of working for A.S.?
  • My favorite part of working for A.S. is the career development tools it has given me. Associated Students has helped me become more confident in myself and my skills.
