What one talent do you wish you had? Being an accountant/ budget analyst, I am more comfortable with numbers and the sciences. However, I would like to be able to draw. My best self-portrait is a stick figure!

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? At the age of 3 – 10, I wanted to be a “Shamu” (orca) trainer at Sea World!

What do you know now that you wish you’d known at 18? Relax, enjoy your youth, and focus on school. Everything will work out.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome? The biggest challenge that I had to overcome was my lack of self-confidence.
