What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice? “Whatever work you do, you have absolutely got to own it. Otherwise, it owns you.” - Davey Wreden, game designer

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I see myself having finished a four-year university and being able to settle down. 

If you could change something about this world, what would it be, and why? I would change the apathy people around the globe feel towards their neighbors.

If you could invite three (3) people to dinner (other than relatives) who would they be, and why? I would invite Oprah Winfrey because she’s such an inspiration to me, former President of the United States Barack Obama because he’s such a strong example of a good human being, and Betty White because she’s an amazingly funny and talented woman.
