“In middle school, they asked me what I wanted to be and I said dictator. I got sent to the office,” said Glaspie, an English major. As dictator, Glaspie would turn Taco Tuesdays into a national holiday.

In addition to her role as dictator, Glaspie would like to work in fashion. She joined The Scribe to gain journalistic experience for her future career in fashion magazines.

“I went to Charlotte Russe and I liked the outfits so I was just like ‘I want to write about fashion,’” Glaspie said.

“I critique people in my head when I walk around UCCS,” Glaspie said.

She would also like to be a fashion designer.

“There are so many cute things I could make for girls, guys and babies. Put little cute babies in scarves and sweater dresses,” Glaspie said.

Glaspie is learning Spanish, Korean and Japanese and knows some American Sign Language. She said that in her dictatorship, she would make a language chip and put it in people’s heads.

“So everybody can have languages so they won’t be all mean to each other because I think that’s the real problem. It’s a language barrier. I would make everyone nice and made out of rainbows,” Glaspie said.

As dictator, Glaspie would also make college free.

“I don’t care if you have to pay taxes every year. Rich can pay it,” she said.

Additionally, Glaspie wants to give people money for food, but would require every person on food stamps to find a job within a year.

She has a variety of music on her Pandora, including Kendrick Lamar, the opera “Carmen,” Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.

“Luke Bryan is my future husband, but he doesn’t know it yet,” Glaspie said.

If money wasn’t an object, she would buy a private jet to travel the world, along with a Taco Bell. Additionally, she would pay for summer classes in order to graduate early.

“So I can just travel for like five years of my life with no kids. And then I would have kids and move them to a foreign country and we would live happily in the jungle, like near Hawaii or something,” Glaspie said.

Glaspie, a self-declared military brat who was born with an extra pinkie, would like to move to South Korea and eat chicken-on-a-stick every day for the rest of her life.
