“My family and I really like to hike and have gone on many different hiking trips over the years. One trip I remember fondly was in 2007; my dad, my brother and I went hiking on Mont Blanc in the Swiss Alps. It was our first hiking trip overseas and definitely one of the most unique trips I have been on. Hiking over the years, has made me really love traveling and exploring new places and cultures. Someday I really want to travel around Europe and see all the amazing places the world has to offer.

I love interesting foods and flavors. My favorite food by far is Indian food because of all it’s different spices. I also really love black liquorice and putting soy sauce and crushed red pepper on my pasta.

On Thanksgiving, my family and I don’t have a traditional thanksgiving dinner. Instead we have a tradition of making homemade pizza, lighting a fire in the fireplace, making smores and playing board games. To us, Thanksgiving is not about the turkey and stuffing – it’s about spending time together with family.”
