Where do you go to school? What is your major? I attend Worcester State University, and my major is occupational therapy.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I see myself being an occupational therapist and working with autistic children and children with disabilities. I also hope to be supporting myself and, most of all, being happy.

What book is on your bedside table? I honestly haven’t read a book since high school. I don’t really have the attention span for it!

What can’t you stop listening to on your iPod? I listen to a very wide variety of music. I really like anything that has good rhythm. My four favorite songs are “Hey Jude” by The Beatles, “No Diggity” by Blackstreet, “Collie Man” by Slightly Stoopid and “Rip Her to Shreds” by Blondie.

What skill are you most proud of? What hidden skill do you have? I am probably most proud of my ability to be active and athletic. I’ve always loved a good game of basketball. A hidden skill that I have is that I really enjoy writing poetry.

What is your favorite charity? My favorite charity is Relay for Life because I’ve had too many loved ones taken from me by cancer.

What’s your favorite drink? I like a good ol’ classic Shirley Temple.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be? I would want the ability to teleport. There are so many beautiful places in this world that I need to see … and sometimes just to get me to class on time.

What is your passion? I have been working with children with disabilities since I was in the fourth grade. My passion is to help out people who are in need and to put a smile on their faces.
