What are you passionate about? I try to voice my struggles with mental illness to show others it’s OK to be a little different and to show people that having a mental illness doesn’t mean someone is ‘crazy.’

Who do you admire? My two best friends. They teach me new things every day and have shown me the strength someone can truly have.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? I can drive a manual transmission.

Are you a dog person or a cat person? Dog: the bigger the better.

If you had to pick, would you want someone with beauty or brains? Brains; it’s hard to hold a conversation with someone otherwise.

My last meal would be… hard shell crabs.

My theme song would be… ‘Crush on You’ by Nero.

My best concert was… Brooke Gerhart.

For a good time I… take photos, watch baseball, and play pool.
