What do you like to do in your free time? I watch a lot of tv and movies, bake, read, play video games and board games, and listen to podcasts.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you travel, and why? I’ve been to a few places, but I’ve never been to Japan and I’d love to go. Every time I see someone talk about travelling there online, they always talk about how great it was. Plus, I really want to try out their gachapon machines and visit the Studio Ghibli Museum!
What is one cool fact about you? When I was a senior in college, I went on a month-long study abroad trip to London, Oxford, Edinburgh, and Orlando, Florida that was entirely about the Harry Potter books. We visited a bunch of filming locations and locations that inspired the story, as well as getting a couple days in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando!
