Advice for future self Never forget where you came from. I’m currently fueled by the next chapter — living on my own, college,  and new experiences excite me. With all these new adventures, it is easy to lose track of my roots.

Guilty pleasure The Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates.

Best high school memory Being in the student section for my high school’s state championship football game during my junior year.
