What do you like to do for fun?

I love to go on new adventures/trips with friends, exploring new places and eating new foods with them is the best. I also love to binge watch reality tv and Netflix shows. 

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

“When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.” -Michelle Obama

Who is someone you admire and why?

Beyoncé is a huge inspiration in my life. Not only is she one of the greatest entertainers, but she is a trailblazer that leaves an impact wherever she goes. She has showed me how you can overcome large obstacles, maintaining and taking joy in my blackness, and preserving even when you feel like giving up. Beyoncé moves in silence most of the time, not letting people into her life, and allowing for her work to speak for itself. That is what I aim for in my life.
