What are your future career goals?
I intend to pursue a career in fashion for business.
 
What are some of the places/things on your bucket list?
Before I die I must go sky diving, see the aurora lights, and set foot on every country around the world.
 
What is your favorite word in Spanish?
My favorite word in Spanish is “vale” not only because it is fun to say but also because it is a word that can be used in many different parts of conversation. 
 
What motivated you to choose Peru?
I chose to do an internship in Peru not only for its gorgeous scenery but as well for the opportunity to experience a new way of life and culture. By traveling abroad and living among the locals for several weeks, I believe will expand my knowledge of the world and will better prepare me for my future if I need to pick up and relocate to a country and place completely foreign to me. 
 
What is your favorite quote?
My favorite quote is “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin because when I hear it I am always reminded that there is so much more in life to smile about then frown.
