What has been the coolest place you’ve traveled to?

I have traveled to Switzerland and Spain; they were amazing! Spain was very humid and hot but the beaches are marvelous. Spain has the most breathtaking views. The food, especially seafood, was delicious and fresh.

What’s a skill you learned when you were young that you still use today?

The hardest yet most valuable thing I had to learn when I was young was time management. I started working when I was in high school. I picked up two jobs in the summer to pay for my Spain trip and I ended up keeping both jobs while going to school. My weekends were very busy but I had to balance my school work and my job. Learning to manage my time wisely helped me stay on track with my studies. I ended up graduating my senior year while being a manager at the main job I kept!
