Who do you admire most in the world and why?
My little sister. She has been through a lot in her 17 years on earth, and she remains to be the most positive and resilient person I know.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you bring and why?
A knife — most handy thing to have on an island
Sunscreen — so I don't get melanoma after I'm rescued
A picture of my family — it would provide me with motivation to get off the island
What is your favorite all-time book and why?
Atlas Shrugged - most thought provoking book I've ever read, also a very good love story.
Tattoo Count: 0
Do you consider yourself a romantic and why?
Yes, I grew up watching '80s movies. I want the Jake character from the end of 16 Candles or Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything — I want the guy to pursue me and then make an enormous romantic gesture like holding a boom box over his head.
Do you have any family holiday or special event traditions that you plan to uphold?
Every Christmas Eve we exchange the ugliest pajamas we can find and play a family board game together.
