Who is someone you admire, and why?
Someone I admire is my dad. He is such a strong, funny, humble, and loving individual. He makes me happy and he also makes me sad (sad because we joke around too much and the jokes can go pretty far😂).

Three of your biggest pet peeves?
Three of my biggest pet peeves would have to be annoying mouth noises, someone not flushing the toilet, and putting cereal into a bowl just to find out that there’s no milk in the fridge.☹️

What’s a typical day like for you?
A typical day for me would consist of showering, eating three meals a day, going to work, and doing homework. It’s pretty boring but on days where I’m free, I love to go hiking, skiing, swimming, the mall, and even driving up the canyon because I live so close to the mountains!

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
I love to sing, write, do service, play tennis and travel.

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
I would love to be on the beach in Greece reading a good book or sunbathing!

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I was ten I remember wanting to be a fifth grade teacher so that I could go on field trips with my students.

What do you think are the best skills that you bring to your job?
I think that I try to be as organized as possible, I try to communicate as best as I can with my coworkers, I’m a pretty good listener, I have a positive attitude, and I’m motivated to keep the kids from not crying (which can be hard at times. You know how that goes).

What are three words that describe you?
Kind, supportive, and generous.

What do you want to make sure you do before you die?
I want to make sure that I sky dive, travel a lot, write a book, invent something, and learn how to draw/paint better.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
I’m at my happiest when I’m with my best friend and we’re doing spontaneous activities. I love to go on adventures and drive everywhere! It makes me so happy!

What are some causes you care about?
I care about refugees, emotional/behavioral disorders, autism, homeless, abuse, and so much more!

What do you do with friends in your spare time?
We love to drive up the canyon and have picnics or paint up there. We love to go to small shops and walk around or even go to the mall just to look. We love to sing, paint our nails, and ski together.

What would be your personal motto?
Seek first to understand, then to be understood. I don’t know who said this but my family uses it all of the time and it’s so helpful especially when you’re only seeing your side of the story. You want to make sure to listen to all sides of a story before you make a conclusion.
