What do you like to do for fun? 

In my free time, I like to go to concerts in Nashville with my friends and to crochet. 

Who is someone you admire and why? 

My dad is someone I admire the most in my life because he has gone through so much and always keeps a positive outlook on life and always encourages me in everything I do. 

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

One of my most proud moments was being able to graduate college a year early and seeing how happy everyone was for me that day.
