What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice?
My mother has always told me, ”you can do anything you set your mind to do, believe in yourself and you will have the confidence and courage to succeed.”

If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why?
If I could change anything about this world, it would be the dependency of modern day technology. The rapid advancement of technology has made society glued to their electronic devices. These complex devices have enriched our everyday lives and made everything simple. In addition to that statement, I believe the technology is beneficial for educational purposes to a certain extent.
If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why?
If I could invite three people to dinner, I would invite Steve Carell to dinner because he is my favorite actor from The Office, which is also my all time favorite TV show. I would also invite, Oprah Winfrey to dinner. She has used her fame to contribute vast amounts of donations to various organizations and charities. Lastly I would invite Rihanna to the dinner. In addition to her music career, Rihanna has also acted in movies, created her own makeup and clothing line. She is an inspirational role model for the younger generations.
