What is your favorite quote?
“If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.” This was my quote of choice on the senior portrait page in my high school yearbook. This quote has guided my life since then and will continue to be one of the aspects of my personal philosophy for the rest of my life. I have an immense desire for continued, differentiated learning which I think is my greatest strength.

Who is someone you admire and why?
I greatly admire my mom; she is such a hard worker. Throughout my life she has exhibited perseverance through the toughest times and modesty through the easiest times.
