The one thing no one knows about me is ... I’m pretty much an open book.
My dream job is ... teaching middle school science.
My first job was ... lifeguard at Beech Bend in the summers.
The best advice I ever got was ... you don’t have time to waste. My dad tells us that all the time, and it is so true.
My hero (and why) is ... my parents. My mom because she is goal-driven and is always pushing me to be my best self and my father because he is level-headed, kind and respectful.
If I could do it all over again, I ... would have studied harder in school.
The part of my job I could do without is ... unreasonable people.
The one thing I always carry with me is ... my Purple Pride.
Best meal I ever had was ... any meal that my father prepares. He is a master chef.
At the top of my bucket list is ... to go whale watching, see the Grand Canyon and travel to Egypt to see all the ancient artifacts.
