What is your go-to mid-night snack/comfort food?

Either chocolate or mashed potatoes/mac and cheese from Boston Market. Specific I know.

What was your favorite book as a tween?

The Private series by Kate Brian, I still have every single book on my shelf. I think I may re-read them this summer if I have time!

Who is your celebrity crush?

Ian Somerhalder; more specifically Damon from the Vampire Diaries.

What is your biggest irrational (or rational) fear?

Death, really. It’s inevitable but it freaks me out. And not even just my death, other people dying is something I fear as well. The idea of someone being in your life and then being forever gone is deeply saddening.

How long did it take you to learn how to ride a bike?

Maybe 1 year? I hate bikes now. I really do, ask any of my friends. Maybe that’s another one of my irrational fears? Bikes. I don’t know why they just irk me.

What was your favorite high school extracurricular?

Yearbook. I was on it for three years (you can’t as a freshman). I was editor for two years and I was in love with not only the writing/editing but the people as well. We were a family and I will remember that experience for the rest of my life.

What is your favorite concert you have ever attended?

Again, I suck with favoritism(too indecisive!) but right now as of this year either the Andy Grammer concert I went to or The Fray. I felt the music in my bones as weird as that may sound. I always tend to love more intimate settings when it comes to concerts.

Describe your perfect date?

Right now anything, but I’m a cheesy romantic. So something along the lines of that, or something really daring like sky diving, rock climbing, that stuff.

What was the worst date you’ve ever been on?

So far? 7th grade, we went to a movie with my friends and it was just so awkward.

Who is the woman who inspires you most?

My mom. She is the kindest soul I have ever met. She never fails to try her hardest and she has done her very best to create a good life for me and my four other siblings. I love her more than life itself and I only hope to be half the mother to my kids that she was to me. Because what she has done, and dealt with in her life makes her so incredibly selfless and I owe her endlessly.

What was the last mind-blowing fact you learned or realized that shifted your worldview?

I’m going to have to go with that my happiness matters first and I can’t make everyone happy. Not pretty mind-blowing, but it’s sad how long its taken me to believe this.
