After graduation, I’d like to major in literature and culinary arts at Montclair State University.

The Twilight Saga & 500 Days of Summer.

Is water wet? 

Water is not wet. It makes things wet. It’s not dry either. Water is just water. 

What is your favorite joke? 

Why did the painting go to jail? He was framed :(

What activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of school? 

Outside of school I enjoy reading, writing, and cooking. It’s like therapy. 

If there’s one thing you would change about the world, what would it be? 

If there would one thing I could change it would be the hate that plagues the earth. We need to find more love in each other. If we could be nice to each other, half of the issues in our world wouldn’t even exist.

I judge people based on the way they judge others, as well as their perception of the world. I judge people solely based on whether they’re an optimist or a pessimist. 

What is your life motto?


If you could have one superpower what would it be?

Telepathy. I feel like reading minds and communicating without talking could do so much for me mentally.
