1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
My favorite time of the year is the Thanksgiving Holiday because thats the time when my entire family gets together and eats so many delicious dishes! Everyone is just thankful for one another and their surroundings. I love it!

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
I am a gospel dancer for my church. The group is called Living Sacrifices of Praise Dance Ministry and we believe in using our bodies to dance and worship Jesus.

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
Washington, DC is an international city. People come here from all over the world, such as my family from Clarendon, Jamaica! Jamaica is home to my favorite beach, Dons River Falls, and has wonderful food and extremely kind peoplejust like DC!

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
My worst habit is that I sing extremely loud when I am in the shower! I do so because I want the whole house and my neighbors to hear me.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
I would love to travel to France because I study the French language in school and France sounds like such a beautiful, wonderful and interesting place to visit!
