What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Making my family proud by creating my own path in life and enjoying each day to the fullest.
What scares you most about traveling? Having never traveled outside of the United States, my biggest fear is being ignorant to the cultures and customs of other countries I visit and offending anyone.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? I would love to visit Ireland or Fiji! Both places are uniquely beautiful and completely different than anywhere I’ve visit before.
What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Finishing the race is my biggest goal because it means I’ll have made it around the world in my first venture outside of the U.S., and I hope to make lifelong friends along the way!
