My first job was….

besides acting jobs when I was younger, my current internship was my official appearance in the “adult working world.” I am a research assistant at the Arizona Cancer Center.

A typical day in my life includes…

when I am at school it starts with me hitting the snooze button 40 times before waking up. I then pull on my super stylish scrubs and go volunteer at the Z-Mansion WORKship Project’s first aid station for homeless. Next, I go to work at the Cancer Center where I assist with EKGs, centrifuging and blood smears. After a few hours of shadowing the researchers, I Uber to class. Yes, I must Uber, because my dad doesn’t trust me with my car after ONE itsy bitsy incident with backing into a basketball hoop. After I finish class and homework, I’ll pull out my Heelys, get rolling, and hit the town.

I was born…

a superstar!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the fact that I can wear my summer clothes every season, Wasted Management’s Open, Fox Concept’s Restaurants, the creative drinking and driving prevention signs on the freeway, and getting to mess with people who don’t live here by telling them that I “survived” a haboob and that jumping cholla can jump up to 60 feet.

I’m listening to…

Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas and next I will listen to the entire Les Miserables musical. Now you know why I am never the one in charge of picking the music.

My family…

is crazy. They are my very wild but very amazing support system. If I ask them to be somewhere they will be there right away and with a half full bottle of tequila (or half empty, however you want to look at it).

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

picture this: Morgan Freeman, Eddie Vs, starting with the caviar tasting, followed by the filet mignon and lobster tail with a side of asparagus, ended with the hot chocolate Godiva cake, all while he narrates the menu.

One thing I cannot live without…

my lungs.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an actress. If you ever need a good laugh watch any of my old acting stuff. I was the most awkward kid you’ll ever meet.

I’m inspired by…

my self-less and amazing Grandpa! He flew a C130, a flying hospital, during the Vietnam War. I aspire to help as many people as he did in my life.

The one person who motivates me is…

my parents, everything I do is to make them proud and to make sure I can get them into a nice nursing home. My mom wants one in Hawaii and that is not going to be cheap.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

healthcare for all, clean oceans, and better shows on Netflix.

The perfect day would be…

myself + an even number of friends (so everyone has a partner on the two person rides) at Disneyland, no lines, and Space Mountain isn’t broken down.

My favorite escape…

Sprout’s bulk section. It’s dreamy.

My life…

has only just begun. But, please pull my plug, regardless of what doctors or I say, when I get my first wrinkle.

I’m currently working on…

finishing college so I can get into medical school, getting on one episode of the Price is Right, planning my 20th birthday extravaganza, applying for a summer internship, studying for the MCAT, finding myself a nice man, dog, or guinea pig, and getting EMT certified.

Always…

remember to turn off your turn signal.

Never…

cut a cop off, especially Scottsdale PD.

Favorite Quote…

Biggest Dream…

this is a dream I have had many times and I wish for it every 11:11. I was working at Jimmy Johns as the person that delivers the subs on the bike. I delivered a sub to the girl who plays Elle Woods on Broadway, she ate the sub and realized it had ranch in it. She was lactose intolerant so she got too sick to perform and she asked me to take her place. Luckily, I know that whole musical already so I gladly took over. The curtains closed and I did outstanding.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when Siri doesn’t understand me and when I am taking a nice stroll and hear a skateboard approaching me from behind.
