What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Adventure Of A Lifetime by Coldplay would be my theme song. Its a positive, fun, upbeat song. It represents so many experiences I have had in my life so far that I am grateful for. I cant help but feel happy and upbeat when this song is playing and what a better way to make an entrance, smiling and feeling good about life and myself.

What according to you is a true friend?
When I was a young girl I loved to play dress up and look like a princess in pretty dresses. Although I still love to dress up and put on beautiful gowns, my favorite place to shop is Lululemon. With my busy school and athletic schedule, comfort is key. I love the versatility of their clothes. Lululemon allows me to be comfortable and stylish at the same time.

How do you handle criticism?
With my family I have traveled to 22 states and 10 countries. My favorite family vacation is going to Hawaii. My Mom was born there and the majority of our family resides there. I love visiting the islands to see my relatives, and doing things I dont normally do, like swimming in the ocean, whale watching, cliff diving, kayaking, and enjoying what the beautiful tropical climate has to offer.

When was the last time you tried something new?
I play front row outside hitter for my schools volleyball team, and although that is played in-door, my favorite outdoor activity is also volleyball. I practice outside with my sister, who also plays. The bonding time we share together, doing something we both love, enjoying the fresh air, is something that I hold near and dear to my heart and absolutely cherish.
