What do you like to do for fun?

For fun I love to travel and experience new cultures. I got to travel extensively in North America and Europe on educational tours including Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Monaco, Poland, San Marino, Spain, Slovakia, United States, and Vatican City.


Describe the most memorable place you’ve been.

The most memorable place I have been was the Vatican. It is truly inspiring and beautiful, as well as a deeply peaceful and thought-provoking place. My family and I where lucky enough to be a part blessing done by the Pope. 


What is your proudest accomplishment? 

My proudest accomplishment is graduating college with a bachelor’s and associates degree. As a first generation American it was hard navigating the whole process by myself. However, I pride myself in doing it on my own and succeeding on my journey!
