What is the first thing you notice about a person?
I notice their heart/spirit. I never judge off of anyone's physical appearance. What matters to me is what makes that person themselves. I always aim to see the best in people. I never want to assume the worst of people.
What goals do you have for the next five years?
My main goal is to be happy and healthy. I have been paralyzed, and it put my life in perspective on how amazing life is. No matter where I’m at in life, I strive to understand there’s a reason for everything. This mindset is what got me through being first diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Living a long happy, healthy life is always my main goal.
What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
I would pay off my student loans, give a percentage to my family, put some in savings, and give some to essential places like hospitals, support groups, and nonprofits like Haley’s Hope. Of course, I would let myself get something nice!
What is the most useless thing you’ ve ever purchased?
I don’t believe things can be completely “useless.” I think we buy things that bring us joy or fulfillment, even if it’s only momentarily. With that being said, I do believe there are times when we need to let things go or ask ourselves if we really need that said thing. Just like how I may or may not have purchased some lip gloss when I really didn’t need to.
What’s the best way to spend a rainy afternoon?
Whether it’s raining or most likely snowing in North Dakota, I love to open all the curtains to embrace the beauty of mother nature that’s around us. I also love wrapping up in a cozy blanket, lighting my favorite candles, and watching movies with the people that are important in my life. I also see it as the perfect time to bake!
