What was the best advice you ever received? Who gave you the advice?
“Never settle for less, keep pushing yourself to be better because you can always do better.” - my Nanny
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself still in school working to get my Veterinary degree.
If you could change anything about this world, what would it be and why?
One thing I would change about this world is the justice system. The justice system is the most important thing that we have yet, it's also the most corrupt part of our system. This system was designed to punish everyone equally no matter who you are. More times than not, financial status and color of your skin can get out easier. Which is exactly why it needs to be taken care of before it gets too late.
If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why?
Adam Sandler because he's really funny and humble.
Parker McCollum due to him also being good looking and a good singer.
Last but not least Alexandra because she inspires me to help others in FFA.
