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

The best advice I have ever received has come from my parents. They have always taught me to pursue my dreams, to work hard, never give up, and to always have Faith.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In five years, I see myself completing nursing school as a RN and working in a children’s hospital.

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

If I could change anything about this world, I wish I could end poverty. Poverty is one of the world's biggest problems. Our world has too many people who lack shelter, food, water, education, medical treatment, and other necessities. Although poverty rates have decreased, it still does exist. It breaks my heart knowing that so many people are living in a world of poverty.

If you could invite 3 people to dinner (other than relatives), who would they be and why?

Drake because I love his music and would love his musical entertainment. Kylie Jenner because she is a natural leader and I would like to know all about her business and her line of cosmetics. Jennifer Lopez because she is an amazing Latina actress, singer, and dancer who I would love to talk to and have a conversation with about her and all of her success.
