What is your favorite quote from a book, film, or song?
“Hakuna matata! … It’s our problem free philosophy” – “The Lion King”

Who is someone you admire and why?
Someone I admire is Rihanna because she is the definition of seeing a problem and creating your own ways to solve the problem. She saw a problem within the beauty industry, where there was a lack of range in beauty products for people of color and she launched her own foundation to eradicate the problem. Since the launch of Fenty Beauty, Rihanna has not only been able to successfully build her own product line, but has also inspired and motivated more beauty brands to increase the range in their products. I aspire to take charge of a problem and find my own ways to fix such problem like that of Rihanna.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?
That I have never broken a bone despite my clumsiness.
