Favorite quotes/sayings? A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking because her trust is not in the branch but in her own wings. - Unknown
Hobbies/hidden talents? I enjoy fishing with my dad, karaoke with my sister, and game nights with family and friends.
Pets? I have the best critter in the world, Tyson! He is a cute and crazy canine with the biggest personality who keeps me on my toes!
If you could study any random thing other than HDFS, what would it be? If I had to choose a field of study other than HDFS, I would happily study business and marketing. I studied business and marketing in high school and almost chose it as my undergraduate major. I decided that psychology would be more exciting of a profession for me, but I am still very intrigued by most business and marketing topics.
