A junior from Walkersville, Maryland...

Maria Bennici

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In ten years, I see myself living in Paris, and having an amazing time living in Europe.

What did you do when you found out you'd be on Jeopardy!?
When I found out I was on Jeopardy!, I was insanely happy. Like, I was jumping around my house and screaming, and just going totally insane. But, I was really, really excited, and I'm still really excited now, it's hard to believe that's happened.

What are you most excited about today?
I am most excited about winning the money, of course, so, that would have to be my chief.

What will you do with your winnings?
If I were to win the money on Jeopardy!, it would have to go towards college. And if I had any room for anything else, probably travel.
