What’s your favorite food?: Pancakes


What’s your favorite sports movie?: I really like “Remember the Titans” even though it’s a football movie.

What’s your least favorite subject or class in school?: History


If you won $1 million what’s the first thing you’d do with the money?: I would definitely put it toward a trip I’m thinking about taking in the summer to Haiti.
