Model of the Week: Autumn Peck
First Posted: 2/9/2015
Full name: Autumn Peck
Hometown: Shamokin, PA
Favorite Weekender feature: I always wind up reading the Quick Chord and music reviews, but I also love reading the “Tap This/That” and “Sorry Mom and Dad”.
Favorite bar/restaurant: I love breakfast in general, so my local pick would have to be Chuck’s Diner on Main St because of how many times I have been there with Derek Jolley. In my hometown, you can find me at the Whatnot Shoppe Café on Independence St.
What are you passionate about? I am passionate about having a fun and celebrating the subtleties in life! Life is too precious to not celebrate the little victories hidden amongst the mundane.
Who do you admire? My grandparents, Ray & Donna Peck, and my mom, Brenda Checci, because they have shown me that having resilience and the will to work for what you want, always pays off.
What’s something most people don’t know about you? I have an indescribable love for Dave Matthews Band, Lord of the Rings, and the Austin Powers trilogy.
Are you a dog person or a cat person? Definitely a dog person… cats can’t be trusted.
If you had to pick, would you want someone with beauty or brains? My preference is for brains by a landslide. I would much prefer to be able to have an intelligent conversation with someone rather than be someone’s spotter at the gym.
My last meal would be … pierogies and/or pumpkin pie.
My theme song would be … Two Step by Dave Matthews Band.
My best concert was … Dave Matthews Band (6/28/14) in Burgettstown, PA
For a good time I … play my clarinet in any band or orchestra I can be a part of, or spend time doing absolutely anything with my family and friends.
