|What is your most memorable childhood experience?
|When I was younger some of my favorite memories were going to my uncles house on the bay. His house was right on the water and getting to run down the beach and fish and swim with my dad and uncle was so much fun. To this day some of my fondest memories with my father are at my uncles house. It was always "our" trip and I always had so much fun.
|What immediate family member do you closely identify with and why?
|My father and I are close and I feel comfortable talking to him about most things. I'm going through a time in my life that he experienced and so many of the things I am trying and questions I am trying to figure out he went through and so he has lots of good advice.
|What character traits do you admire in an individual?
|I admire someone who is funny, kind, strong, empathetic, trustworthy, and resourceful.
|What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?
|In 8th grade we had crazy hair day in school and I would always go all out to win. My sisters would put a bunch of ponytails in my hair and then we would spray them all different colors. Unbeknownst to me I had a doctors appointment and an orthodontists appointment on the same day, and so I had to go to these with my hair all wild and no context as to why I looked that way.
|If time and money were not an issue, where would you travel and why?
|Anywhere tropical. I love the beach so much and hearing the ocean and smelling the salty air just fills me with so much contentment and happiness. If I could I would travel all around those places and live in bliss.
|When and if you ever have children, what would you like to pass on to them?
|I would want them to joint the Scouts. Being an Eagle Scout was not only a very important milestone in my life but I learned a lot about leadership and hard work being in the Scouts. Also I think that kids these days do not get enough time in nature and it is truly a great experience to have.
