What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice?:
The best advice I have ever received was from my grandfather. He has always taught me growing up that I should “enjoy the little things” and “live in the moment”. He has taught me to always appreciate what I have and most importantly he has taught me the importance of family.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?:
In 5 years I see myself a college graduate working in a clinic helping and educating women in need. I also plan to travel as much as possible in order to enjoy the amazing life that has been gifted to me.
If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why?:
If I could change anything in this world it would definitely be to put an end to large scale conflicts. I feel as though without war we would be able to focus more on bigger problems at hand such as poverty, inequality, and global warming. This would also insure for a safer and more peaceful environment for everyone around the world.
If you could invite 3 people to dinner, who would they be and why?
If I could invite 3 people to dinner they would definitely be Stevie Nicks because she is my all time favorite singer who I feel has had a great impact on the music industry as we know it. I would also invite Matthew McConaughey because he will forever be my favorite actor who I absolutely adore. Lastly, I would choose Quentin Tarantino because he is a very talented and unique filmmaker that I love.
