What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you this advice?

I have received a lot of advice as i went through high school but if I had to pick one as the best advice, I would quote my Instructor MSgt Lane, “If you truly love doing something, Then it will never be a job, it becomes your life.”

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I would see myself just out of college and working hard to get into the Air Force.

If you could change anything about this world, what would it be?

I would change the world in a way such that, we could be more understanding towards those around us. I hope to see more people understand the true meaning of Empathy and utilize it more.

If you could invite 3 people to dinner, Who would they be and why?

I would invite Stephen Hawking and thank him for giving me a love of science and thirst for the unknown.

I would invite MSgt Lane and thank her for allowing me to meet so many new people and make a change in the local area.

I would invite Jacquelyn-Perez-Saenz, and thank her for always being there when I felt lost.
