Best Advice: The best advice ever given to me was by a school counselor who told me, "Slow down and enjoy being a kid."

Where I see myself in 5 years: I see myself graduated with my Bachelors of English from Texas A&M Corpus Christi, teaching at Alice High School, while pursuing my Masters Degree. 

If I could change something in the world: It would be to bring back the respect that my generation has lost for their authority figures.

Three people to have dinner with: I would want to have dinner with Jesus Christ, and talk to him about his straight and narrow walk through our world. 2nd I would have dinner with President Donald Trump, and discuss how to stay strong and firm when people try to bring you down. And lastly I would have dinner with Melissa McCarthy, because she is absolutely hilarious!
