FULL NAME Clara Fisher
HERITAGE Korean American
CLAIM TO FAME After an eventful year (she got married, hence the name, and she released an acoustic album, Organika), the New York native singer-songwriter is currently working on, in her own words, “*drum roll*… Brand Spankin’ New Songs!”
Go-to karaoke song: “Forgot about Dre” or “Always Be My Baby.”
Last time I cried: Laughing with my friends.
Always makes me laugh: Stand up comedy.
Go-to comfort food: Ramen. No joke. I’m an addict and recently gave myself an intervention.
Last thing I ate: Garlic brussel sprouts, roasted butternut squash and agedashi tofu.
Currently on “repeat” on my iPod: Pharrell’s “Happy.” Trying not to listen to it too much because I don’t ever want to feel annoyed by hearing it.
A guilty pleasure I don’t feel guilty about: The. Spice. Girls.
Current favorite place: Any tropical waterside location. I dream of moving to Hawaii.
Favorite drink: I’m a whiskey lover with a growing collection.
Current obsession: DIY things. I’ve been building my own furniture, and it’s so addicting. It’s arts & crafts meets functional avant-garde artistry!
Pet peeve: Bad smells (breath, body odor, feet, etc.).
Habit I need to break: Hot Fries, Hot Cheetos, Hot Cheetos Puffs … the whole damn Hot Cheetos family needs to leave me alone! Or rather, I need to leave them alone.
Hidden talent: Latin ballroom dancing, i.e. salsa, mambo.
Talent I’d like to have: Drawing. Although my stick figures will give yours a run for their money.
Word or phrase I most overuse: I try never to over- use words or phrases. Keep it fresh on the daily.
Someone you follow on Twitter we’d be surprised about: I just logged in to see and I have no clue why or when I started following Harry Styles of One Direction.
Greatest fear: Spiders. Nasty little buggers.
Motto: Live, love, learn, laugh.
What’s cool about being Asian: Getting cash- money on New Year’s and Korean food.
My job in another life: Actress!
