Would you rather go hang gliding or whitewater rafting? I’ve been whitewater rafting, and although I would definitely love to go again, maybe it’s time to try hang gliding!
What book impacted you the most? A Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela is a testament to the fact that although change isn’t easy, it is possible.
What’s the last adventure you went on? I went to the Caribbean coast of Colombia in March with my sister and my aunt. It was beautiful.
What are three interesting facts about you? I lived in Bolivia for a year. I speak Spanish. I’ve been almost a mile deep into the Earth at Sanford Lab in Lead.
If you could have an all-expenses paid trip to see any famous world monument, which monument would you choose? I would love to see the Pyramids of Giza.
