What Are You Most Passionate About?

I am most passionate about learning – whether that be through school, travel, reading, or listening to TEDtalks online. I have always loved going to school since the first day I went; I was never the kid that cried when I went to school alone or cried because school was starting again. Shopping for school supplies is practically a hobby for me. I am a junior at Arizona State University studying Supply Chain Management and hopefully starting a minor in Sustainability soon. I love both of these fields and how perfectly they intertwine, and I hope to take the knowledge of sustainability to reform supply chain in the future. However, I will likely be a lifelong student -always traveling and earning more degrees and certificates just because I crave to know more.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

I would have to say that the tattoo artist, Kat Von D, is my hero. She first started on a TV show called Miami Ink a long time ago, and at that age, I had never seen a woman tattoo artist, let alone one so talented, or a woman covered in tattoos.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The piano. I do not know how to play myself, but it is a dream of mine to learn. The ‘solo piano’ playlist on Pandora is my favorite. It’s so peaceful.
