What would you do if you won the lottery? 

I would plan one trip a year with my whole family and donate the rest to different nonprofit organizations. 

What inspires you? 

People who overcome adversity and who still find it in them to give back to the world are such an inspiration to me. 

What is the most interesting place you’ve traveled? 

I have only traveled within the United State, but the city that has surprised me the most was Pittsburgh. The Phipps Conservatory and the Duquesne Incline were incredible! 

What did you want to be when you were a kid? 

Doctor, writer, magazine editor or a pop singer were all professions I wanted to have when I was young. 

Who is someone you admire, and why?   

I admire my daughter. She is fearless and is always herself in every situation. 

What are some causes you care about?   

Any causes that have long-term impacts and help build up individuals and families are ones that I care about. One cause that is near and dear to my heart is Habitat for Humanity. 

Who is your favorite superhero? 

Does Mulan count? I love Mulan. Mulan counts.
