What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice?
“You can’t give up. Even if you don’t like your situation, you have to keep pushing and give it your all.” -The athletic trainer Clarissa Perez.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years, I will have already received my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise and Sports Science. I would be in the process of becoming a physical therapist.
If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why?
The one thing in the world that I would want to change is for all children to have a true childhood. Children should not be faced with real world problems or responsibilities too young. Children should grow up with a carefree childhood to be able to have the same opportunities as their peers.
If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why?
The first person I would invite to dinner is Robert Downey Jr., he is a great actor who has helped many kids. The second person would be Alex Morgan, she is an athlete that I look up to due to her being so inspirational. The last person I would invite is Drake because he is one of my favorite music artist.
