How would your friends describe you?
“My friends would describe me as fun-loving, kind and open to new adventure. They will tell you that I have many hobbies in many different categories. I enjoy the outdoors and getting dirty, I enjoy watching football and yelling at the top of my lungs. Yet, I have no problem settling down with a book and a cup of coffee snuggled up indoors for hours on end. My friends might also describe me as someone who cannot sit still for too long or feel comfortable sitting inside without becoming antsy and anxious. Unless, of course, coffee and books are involved.”
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?
“It’s a toss up between the ’20s and ’70s. I absolutely love the culture of these two decades. I feel as though these time periods produced unique styles and great music that cannot be duplicated just right in our modern times.”
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
“When I was a child I wanted to be a teacher, which comes from my longing to continually grow and learn individually, as well as with others.”
