If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I’ve always wanted to go camping up in the Boundary Waters in Northern Minnesota. The idea of stepping away from the modern world for a while and being able to spend quality time with good friends while also enjoying nature is something that really appeals to me. My dad took a trip up there a while back and always mentions that it was one of the best experiences he’s ever had.
What is one trait that has helped you to grow as a person and how?
Adaptability. Growing up in a military household, we moved quite frequently throughout my childhood. Getting accustomed to new schools, new places, and new friends was something you had to learn to deal with pretty quickly. I think that being thrown into different environments as a child taught me how to easily connect well with others everywhere I go.
