What do you like to do for fun?

I really enjoy reading and watching classic black and white movies. Any movie with Jimmy Stewart or a Hitchcock film will do. I also love to dance!

What is your favorite quote from a book, film, or song?  

My favorite quote is from the poem that inspired me to become an English major. When I was a senior in high school, my English teacher read William Ernest Henley’s poem “Invictus” to my class. I have never forgotten the words “I am the master of my fate/I am the captain of my soul.”
