What do you like to do for fun?

Anything outdoors—hiking, kayaking, swimming, playing soccer etc. When I’m not outside though you can find me reading or rewatching Game of Thrones.

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

A quote from my favorite book, Tuesdays with Morrie: “Most of all walk around as if we’re sleepwalking. We really don’t experience the world fully, because we’re half asleep, doing things we automatically think we have to do.” 

Name someone you admire and why?

Emma Watson. I think that it’s admirable that she’s using her position as a platform to advocate for women’s rights!
