What is the last book you read? Did you like it? Why or why not. The last book I read was related to work. It was not for enjoyment, rather, it was for the benefit of the kids I serve.
What is your favorite song and type of music:
I can’t say I have a favorite. I love many genres and am willing to give any new tune a listen.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? Australia. I’ve never been there and I hear it is amazing!
Tell one thing about yourself that might surprise your friends and family if they knew: When I was a teenager, I used to write all of the time. For years I would always write jokes/skits because I wanted to be a standup comic. It never turned into anything and I no longer write, but I still think about it.
What advice would you give to a student today: Use your youth to your advantage. Create a vision, make goals for yourself, and work towards accomplishing them. You’ll never be less busy than you are now.
