What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Black Widow is a strong, courageous, loyal and independent woman but knows when to ask for help. Her role as a team player is one of her best qualities. She embodies many qualities that I look for in others, but also expect in myself. Black Widow is who I would consider the “girl boss” of superheroes ; yet, she respects and values the others on her team.

What according to you is a true friend?
A true friend is someone who is there for you no matter what and expects nothing in return. Someone who will be your biggest fan and your personal diary. A true friend loves you for you and wants to grow with you through life’s hardships. 45

How do you handle criticism?
When criticism is used in a positive manner I enjoy receiving it with an open mind. Everyone views things differently and for me I see criticism as a way of motivation to work harder to achieve a goal that I have. On the flip side, it’s not always easy to hear criticism regardless of how it’s delivered, but I believe it is best to focus on the brighter side of the presentation.

When was the last time you tried something new?
Living in the South you happen to come across some unusual food choices. I am a huge fan of chicken and rarely venture from my comfort zone. However, recently my friends and I were having dinner - I took the opportunity to try gator bites for the first time. For a girl who loves chicken, I see no difference in the taste!!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
In my book, crying is a sign of strength! Growing up with anxiety, crying has been a way for me to safely express my emotions to others when I had no words left to say. It takes a lot of mental strength to allow someone else to see your emotions because you are giving that person so much power and insight into what you are going through. I believe that is the definition of strength.
