What do you like to do for fun?

When I’m not reading history books, I watch a ton of basketball and movies. Watching LeBron James and the year’s Best Picture nominees always gives me an appreciation for two things I’ve never been good at – sports and acting!

Who is someone you admire and why?

Both of my parents are my heroes, but I’ve always seen my dad as both my best friend and the person who’s carried our family through countless hardships. Without his strength and support, I know there’s no way I would have made it this far. (Yes, mom, you’re fantastic, too!)
