What do you like to do for fun?
I love to travel, whether it be to a new country or a road trip to a different state, attend concerts, play with my dog, and spend time outdoors.

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.
While I was on my volunteer trip to Lima, Peru, I was able to visit Machu Picchu. It is the most jaw-dropping place I have ever been. It is completely hidden from the rest of the area and once you get to the top you cannot believe how beautiful it is! If you ever have the chance to go, I definitely recommend it.

What is your favorite quote from a book, film, or song?
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.”
-H. Jackson Brown from P.S. I Love You
