How would your friends describe you?
My friends would say that I’m laid back. I make jokes—but I can also take jokes. They might also say that I’m motivated, someone who’s willing to try new things, and I’m always up for an adventure. I’d say that’s all pretty accurate!
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
My first stop would be Yosemite National Park in California to climb the Half Dome, an infamous, grueling 14- to 16-mile hike. Being on top of mountains is where I find serenity, so climbing Yosemite would be an epic journey for me—even if it takes days and I’m drenched in sweat by the end of it.
