Favorite Book: It’s so hard to choose but I’ll do my best! I read Pride & Prejudice for the first time in high school. It was one of those books that I was reading at first because people told me I should, but it took me ages. It wasn’t until the last third of the book that suddenly everything came together. Each character, event, decision, and conversation were important. I finished it, watched the tv show, the movie, and even a YouTube channel remake wanting to relive the experience of this classic book.

Favorite Vacation: Growing up, my family’s go-to vacation was Disneyland. We would fly, drive, or take a train down to LA, run around the park for 3-5 days, then head home with happy memories and tired legs. I have taken friends there for the first time and acted almost as a tour guide helping with my collected knowledge of fast passes, parade times, and the best places to eat. I can’t wait for the year I get to take my toddler niece and see the magic through her eyes.
