What one thing would you like most to achieve next? Bucket list, to-do? I wrote my undergraduate thesis on the cost of the Cathedral Churches in the Paris Basin.  I would like to go see them one day soon.
When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?  I wanted to be a doctor.  I spent over 5 years as a hospital corpsman and realized that I didn’t want to have a thing to do with medicine.
What do you know now that you wish you’d known at 18?  It is never too earlier to start investing in your future.
Who was your most-valued mentor? My grandmother, she helped rear me and had an integral part in helping me define who I am and who I want to be.
