What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Lead it is an action word with many meanings and interpretations. For me it is about having a purpose and convictions, it is setting goals to be achieved and the determination to accomplish what you put your mind to do. Most people recognize it and aspire to become it.

What according to you is a true friend?
Sleep I can never get enough! A beautiful exterior starts with a calm and rested inner me. Cat naps can do wonders for any girls energy level!

How do you handle criticism?
I am one of the youngest certified facilitators for the program 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens based on the book and teachings of Dr. Stephen Covey. Facilitating a class of 9th graders was an amazing experience and has since allowed me to share powerful life lessons.

When was the last time you tried something new?
On Tuesdays I serve as a teachers assistant at my Dance Academy. I always look forward to working with the 4-year olds in my class because they have so much enthusiasm that I cant help but to have a great day. I always have a smile on Tuesdays!

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Good luck is needed when you attempt to leave your comfort zone. Therefore, my lucky charm is more of a comfort charm, I call blanky. When I was born, my mom knit a blanket for me, which goes everywhere I go even to this day!
