Three words to describe you: Hungry, hungry, hippo.

Hobbies: I love learning, reading, and dancing. I seek beauty, adventure, and adrenaline. I like nature, exploring, rock climbing, slacklining, and The Settlers Of Catan games. I also study dragons and the stars.

Pet peeves: Windshield wipers on a dry window.

What does it mean to be a Millennial?
Being a Millennial means I can think outside the box. It means I won't settle for mediocrity but, rather, strive for the best outcome. It also means I know what a hashtag is and how to fix just about anything using YouTube or Google.

Personal claim to fame:
Travelling two months in Europe by myself for less than $3000—including airfare!—or winning two state cross-country championships.

Inspiration in life:
Can I say God? He created everything we've ever seen, touched, and experienced. He knows everything there is to know about everything... because he created it. He must be big, intelligent, majestic, and awesome.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why?
A good book to stimulate me mentally, spiritually, philosophically; waterproof mascara because I want to stay hot, especially on TV; and a large comfy bed.

Survivor contestant you're most like:
“Boston” Rob Mariano (Marquesas, All-Stars, Heroes vs. Villains, Redemption Island) because of his puzzle game, ability to lead people, control decisions.

Reason for being on Survivor:
A challenging and exciting adventure—and money!

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
I'm cunning and able to catch on quickly. I also have a unique ability to cause people to trust me and feel comfortable around me. For the physical aspect, I can take anything.
