How do you want to be remembered?
As someone who was helpful. Someone who stands up for what I believe in, even if I’m the only one standing.

EVERYTHING! Literally I wanted to be a scientist and an astronaut and a dancer and a singer.
Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about you?
I can play guitar, piano, and sing. None of them at an advanced/professional level.
Who do you admire and why?
My Mom! Throughout my entire life she has shown me that no matter how bad it gets, there is a way to make it better if you want it bad enough. She taught me how to work hard, and give my best in everything I do.
Name three words that best describe you.
Intelligent, organized, quick-witted
What are you happiest doing when you are not at work?
Either spending time with nine of my twelve niblings (3 nieces, 9 nephews - 3 of them live in the Philippines.) Whether I’m playing video games with the boys, or playing in makeup/skincare with my niece or baking something with all of them.
What would your personal motto be?
“What you permit, you promote.” Meaning, if you allow something to happen to you, it will continue to happen to you.

Buy a house!
