What do you like to do for fun?
As an avid runner and hiker, I enjoy exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains and other hiking trails and ranges in North Carolina. My love for exploration came from my time in Washington, DC where I got to thoroughly explore the history of the United States and I deem it as one of my most memorable experiences where I got to see the rise and struggle of the country throughout history. My love for exploration is also one of my greatest strengths as I love tackling new problems, finding and asking new questions, and seeing things through to the end.
