If you had to pick a theme song that would play every time you entered the room, what would it be?

It’d be a twist between both “Keep Your Head Up” – Andy Grammar and “My Shot” – Lin-Manuel Miranda!

Favorite books:

“The Graveyard Book” – Neil Gaiman. The Chronicles of Nick – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Favorite movies:

ALL MARVEL MOVIES and UP – Disney/Pixar

Favorite food:

Hmong Boiled Pork with Hmong Green (Nqaj npuas hau nrug zaub ntsuab)

It is a meal that I have grown up with that holds a lot of history and sentimental value in my life.

Favorite quote:

“Good times become good memories, but bad time make good lessons.” – Uncle Iroh, Avatar: The Last Airbender

Favorite subjects in school:

English because all of my teachers were amazing!

Favorite theater experience:

Christmas Carol, when the spirit of Christmas’ Past showed up from above the set. It sent shivers down my spine, and I felt fear for the first time in a theater experience. Breathtaking performance and a beautiful set!

Your ultimate vacation destination:

Japan, I want to eat authentic Japanese Cuisine and especially SPICY Tonkotsu Ramen. Plus, the Sakura trees would be a beautiful sight to see.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I want to have the intelligence of Tony Stark so I can make my own Iron Man suits. I think having a nano suit would provide me the necessary abilities such as flight, strength, space travel, super vision, LASERS, and more because all of his suits provided a solution to a weakness in previous suits he has made.

The most influential person in your life/favorite teacher or mentor:

Uncle Iroh, Dragon of the West – Avatar: The Last Airbender

What you wanted to be when you grew up:
