Name: Leslie Butsch

Age: 23

Relationship status: Single

Hometown: Olathe

Time in Lawrence: Six years

Occupation: Social worker

Dream job: I haven’t figured that out — a lot of things.

Describe your style: I really like the ‘60s and ‘70s, and I also pretty much only buy secondhand, so cheap and vintage.

Fashion trends you love: I guess you wouldn’t call it a fashion trend, but I’m really into this body-positivity thing that’s going on — self love, selfie culture — I think it’s a good thing.

Fashion trends you hate: I don’t really hate any trends. There are maybe trends I wouldn’t wear, but I don’t hate any.

Fashion influences: Old movies (Jean Seberg, in particular)

What are your favorite and least favorite things about Lawrence? Favorite thing is definitely the community of people; least favorite thing is drunk college kids.

Tattoos or piercings: Ear piercings, but that’s all.

What’s your spirit animal? A gazelle, because we have the same body type.

Whom do people say you look like? There’s the girl from “Firefly,” but I don’t even know her name. And Taylor Swift, I guess.

Tell us a secret: A secret to life is always listen to your music in the car really loud with the windows down, if the weather permits it.
