What is the accomplishment you are most proud of?  I got the "hustle award" one year at
basketball camp when I was 15 years old. 

What is something we would never know from looking at you? I was first-string cellist in
junior high and I still play videogames.

Who is your hero and why? My hero is my sister. She is a success story with a beautiful family
despite not having had support at an early age. 

Which past Survivor will you play the game most like? I don't believe in playing like any
other contestant before. I'm going to have many alliances so I can always have the best options
to further my game.

Why do you believe you can win Survivor? I'm very likable and sincere so people trust me. 
I'm also very nice so no one will suspect me to be strategic.
