What is your proudest accomplishment?

My proudest accomplishment is probably graduating college with honors without ever once pulling an all-nighter. I came close, but I always got at least 5 hours of sleep.

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.

My favorite trip is, and likely will always be, my trip to England in summer 2015, which was my first time on a plane and my first trip outside of the United States. I worked with students in a small town in central England for about 2 weeks, during which I taught them weird things about America and ate all of the British chocolate I possibly could.
