What is your proudest accomplishment?

I was the first fourth grader to beat a fifth grader in my school’s spelling bee, and then I won again the next year, so I would say being R.L. Norton Elementary’s 1995 & 1996 Spelling Bee Champion is my proudest accomplishment.

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

“As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has- or ever will have- something inside that is unique to all time. It’s our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.” – Fred Rogers
