What’s a movie you can watch over and over again?

I could watch Walk the Line over and over again. I love the music and stories of Johnny Cash and June Carter. I’m also in love with the two actors who portray these characters, Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon.

What bands are you listening to right now?

Neil Young, Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, and the Eagles. I was lucky enough to see all these bands in a concert I attended last year.

What food can you not live without?

I could never live without French fries. I love them in all the shapes and sizes they come in: curly, waffle, shoestring, homemade…they’re all delicious!

What’s your dream job?

I’m currently pursuing my dream job as a student in nursing school and am looking forward to helping people for the rest of my life.

What’s your favourite holiday?

Christmas. There’s nothing I love more than spending time with family, looking at Christmas lights, and eating lots of cookies!
