Do you have a nickname? How did you get it/what does it mean?

I have several nicknames. My sister in particular calls me KoKo because she thinks I identify with Khloe Kardashian.

Who is someone you admire and why?

Someone I admire is Amy Poehler. She was brilliant on Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation, but she also has a passion for encouraging and empowering other females, which is something I strive to do.
