Three words to describe you: Relentless, clever, and decently dope.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Always finding a way to travel the world regardless of budget. We all deserve to see what's out there.

Who or what is your inspiration in life?
Oprah, Beyoncé and the Obamas. They all broke the mold for what being black in America looks like.

What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you?
I rather enjoy a hot cup of tea and a good book.

Which Survivor contestant are you most like?
Kim, my girl is a legend. She hit the sand and aligned quickly. She played both sides effortlessly. I would play like this. Kill 'em with a smile.

Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor?
Beyoncé wrote a song about surviving so I have to honor Queen B.
