Steph Rodriguez, 26
Writer
Astrological sign: Scorpio

Super power you’d like to possess: I would like the power to heal. Have a broken arm? Healed. Have the common cold? Gone. Your basil plant dying? I’ll make it bloom once more. I could say “flight,” “invisibility,” “telepathy” or “telekinesis,” but why not possess a power to help those around you? Just imagine all the positive you could do if you had the power to heal others.
Overrated: Muscles. I think muscles on guys are so overrated and most of the time, they are such a turnoff for me. Usually, the men sporting the chiseled pecks or abs have many photographs of themselves in the bathroom mirror sans shirt. To me, this says, “Hi, I’m pretty much full of myself.” I’ll take the less chiseled every time. I need someone not afraid of ice cream.
Childhood nickname: Stephy.
Gutsiest thing you’ve ever done: I moved away from my family to pursue my career and dreams. Moving is scary. Especially by yourself, to a new city, a bigger city, and you essentially know less than a handful of people. Since the five-hour move north to midtown [Sacramento], I have fallen in love with living here. There were more career opportunities for myself, colleges, and the greenery of this city immediately hooked me in. Although it is hard being so far away from friends and family whom I hardly have the chance to see, I have since met some amazing Sacramentans and have made great steps toward my writing career. It was definitely worth it.
Time your alarm clock is set for: 7 a.m.
Number of times you hit the snooze button: Three to four.
Remedy for a tough day: Lots of music on repeat and a long game of Apples to Apples with a group of friends, which always spurs laughter, instantly putting me in the best of moods. Any board game with a group of friends is a great way of cheering oneself up because you’re around those you trust and know you best. Either that, or a night of dancing around town to music with friends, especially during dance nights that play a lot of old soul music.
Secret favorite movie: Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
Official favorite movie: The Breakfast Club.
Favorite local hangout: Shady Lady Saloon.
Hometown: Bakersfield.
