Do you make your bed every morning?
HAHA. I wish.
If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you?

I love playing the guitar and ukulele to get my mind off the world.

What’s your spirit animal?
Definitely a koala. They sleep for 22 hours a day.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. My family quotes that movie all the time!

The Great Wall
Favorite Disney character?
Mulan. Not just because she’s asian (like me!), but she’s selfless, determined, and a hero. In contrast to most fairytales, she didn’t need the guy to save her.
