Name and describe the most memorable place you’ve been.

While I was studying abroad in Shanghai, China, I was fortunate enough to take a trip to Beijing and climb a part of the Great Wall of China. While atop the wall, I was able to overlook the entire countryside and see just how massive the wall was. Standing on the Great Wall was a childhood dream come true, and that feeling of accomplishment is something hard to replicate.

What do you like to do for fun?

I am a proud mother of six plants, so I like taking care of them! But besides my plants, I like to explore different restaurants and check out any free events going on in the community.
