What kind of volunteering do you do? Currently I volunteer with a marine debris awareness organization out of Tampa. I help with their ambassador program and run some of their social media. I also do beach/environment cleanups whenever I am able. I have also been an avid volunteer with local humane societies and animal shelters in whatever city I’m currently in!

What’s your favorite sports team? New Orleans Saints for NFL (Who Dat?) and TN Volunteers for College Football (Miami Hurricanes are a close second though)

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done? I think the coolest thing that I’ve ever done is snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. It was so inspiring and amazing to see one of the largest living ecosystems in the world.

What are you thankful for? I am thankful for my friends and family that I have kept up with after living in more than 8 different cities. I’ve been so lucky with these people that I have had the privilege to know, and every single one has shaped the person that I am today.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? There are going to be ups and downs in every person’s life. How one reacts to these learning opportunities truly shows who someone is as a person.

Who is your hero? My dad – he is the kindest soul in the world, and he encourages me to be the best person that I can be!
