What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice? “Be who you are and say how you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” — Dr. Suess

Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years, I see myself with my Bachelor’s of Science and Nursing degree, while still working for my Master’s.
If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why? If I could change anything about this world, I would change the negativity that surrounds us on a daily basis. Everyday there is always a form of negativity, and I strongly believe that if people were to actually be kind to others, this world would be a better place.

If you could invite three people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why? If I was able to invite three people to have dinner with, I would choose Chris Klemens, Harry Styles, and Ellen DeGeneres. Chris Klemens, because his YouTube videos and vlogs never fail to make me laugh. I wouldn’t mind having a dinner full of laugh with him. Harry Styles, because he is one of my favorite artists. No matter what mood I’m in, his music is always my go to. Lastly, Ellen DeGeneres because although she’s famous for being a comedian and a television host, she’s also someone who makes incredible changes in people’s lives.
