What do you like to do for fun?
I love to listen to music, read, and go on spontaneous adventures. I also love trying new
foods so eating is always a favorite pastime of mine.

Name and describe a memorable place you’ve been.
A memorable place that I have been to is Carcassonne, France. The city was absolutely
beautiful, and it was interesting to see and learn about the history of the city. I truly
enjoyed shopping and exploring the town markets because I was able to connect with
some of the locals in the city and buy tons of fresh produce. The architecture and
culture within the city itself was beautiful to experience, and inspired me to want to
travel the world more to discover more beautiful places.
