City you live in: Arcadia/Tempe, Arizona

A typical day in my life includes…

going to the gym, stopping at AJ’s, and heading to class or work depending on the day! In the evening you can find me in my dorm with Thai food via Postmates or at one of the various boba shops in Tempe with my best friend or boyfriend!

I was born…

in Phoenix, Arizona but have lived in Seattle, Manhattan Beach, and Europe for a brief stint.

My favorite thing about Arizona

Arizona is amazing because it’s still growing, so there are always new restaurants popping up and fun ways to enjoy the beautiful weather.

I’m listening to…

a lot of country per usual and always alternative/coffee house music!

My family…

I have two sets of moms and five siblings (all under 13 years old) dispersed between two houses in Arizona. My family is very supportive and I credit them for a lot of the interests I have like food, fashion, and traveling!

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

oddly enough, I have recently been very interested in meeting my sperm donor. He is from Switzerland and I am interested to know more about his life.

One thing I cannot live without…

my glasses. If I’m not wearing them I am looking for them LOL!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a ballerina or singer! I used to choreograph music videos to songs by Adele on my flip video camera. Every now and then the videos tend to resurface when my boyfriend comes over…

I’m inspired by…

my moms… they are so hardworking and have taught me so much about being confident and true to myself. I’m also inspired by my little siblings who remind me that being messy and silly is totally acceptable.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mom! Every. Single. Day. She works so hard and always does it with a smile on her face, even on the hard days.

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

I would definitely want people to be more open-minded. I think a lot of people are misunderstood because we don’t listen to one another enough and aren’t open to new ideas.

The perfect day would be…

at the beach tanning, eating good food, and going shopping with my family and friends. My mom is an incredible cook so any day she cooks is a perfect day for me.

My first job was…

Matt’s Big Breakfast which is a locally owned breakfast spot!

My favorite escape…

Laguna Beach, California.

My life…

is hectic but in a good way. Who doesn’t love a little bit of crazy???

I’m currently working on…

being successful in school, building new relationships with people, and saving money for my future.

Always…

say I love you before you leave or go to bed! And always check to make sure you don’t have food in your teeth.

Never…

forget to wash your face before bed!!!

Favorite Quote…

“Never apologize for how you feel.”

Biggest Dream…

I want to have a successful dermatology practice! I struggled with acne so much in high school and my dermatologist helped me build back my confidence. It made me super interested in skincare and want to help others be more confident.         

My Pet Peeve(s)…

I really dislike when I go somewhere and the wait staff or employees are rude. I have worked in the service industry and I get it can be stressful, but it can really ruin someone’s experience. Just smile and be nice!
