    I have been influenced, in part, by my sister who is a chemical engineer. Her career choice has changed her life. 

    Do you have children and/or pets?  No, but I like caring for people and animals. In the near future, I want to have both.  

    What is the last goal you set for yourself—that you achieved?  I was overweight and managed to lose 50 pounds last year.

    What do you do to relax?  Have a conversation with a friend.  

    If you had your own late-night talk show, who would you invite as your first guest?  Nietzsche, a philosopher

    What song or album could you listen to on repeat?  "Back from the Edge" by James Arthur

    If you had to delete all but three apps on your phone, which ones would you keep?  Google Maps, Gmail and Google Chrome

    If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?  beef steak 

    Are you an "early riser" or a "night owl?"  I am a little bit of both. I can wake up at 5:00 a.m. but I can also stay up until 5:00 a.m. 

    Would you try space tourism if money were no object?  No, unless the trip was a one-way trip or I had a specific destination.

    What is your favorite season?  Spring. Especially early spring. 

    What influenced your decision to choose the major or career path that you did?   Two people influenced me with my career decision. Steve Jobs and my sister. Steve Jobs mixed art with engineering. He was not a good engineer but he changed the image of engineering a lot. My sister is a chemical engineer and she changed her life with her career choice. I respect her abilities and am curious about what engineering could accomplish in society.

    What do you plan to do after graduating from Edison State?   I plan to work and pursue a 4-year degree.
