If you could have any power in the world, what would it be and why? Master of time and space. Thanks to the TV show “Heroes” for helping me figure this one out!
What is your most embarrassing moment? When I was about 7, I went to a family friend’s wedding with my family. Wanting to dance and play with my dad, I jumped onto his back to try and get a piggy back ride. Except it was definitely not my dad, but a random man I didn’t even know. Needless to say, I was so embarrassed that I started to cry while frantically looking for my real dad. It was quite traumatizing!
What is your most prized possession? My mother received a watch from her uncle when she went to college. She passed it down to me when I started college. I wear it everyday and plan to pass it on to one of my own children one day.

If you could have any job that you wanted, what would it be and why? As a recent college grad, this question has plagued me from Day 1 of post-grad life. But I’ve come to realize that I’m living the life I’ve always wanted and pursuing what I have always dreamed of doing in the entertainment industry.
Which charitable organization is your favorite/the one you’re most involved in? Why? I absolutely love the Kings Care Foundation for all the wonderful work they do in our community, and I cannot wait to become more involved.
