What are you most excited about in life right now?
I'm always excited about LIFE! I'm lucky to live it! But I'm also still riding high from my Cubs winning the World Series!
If your life were a song, what would the title be?
I've got 2! 1. “Trust the feeling that gives you grit,” and 2. “Passion is everything.”
How would your friends describe you?
I had to ask my friend this question! Her answer: "Loyal to the core with a relentless work ethic who will always stay humble.” From my sister: "Passionate and someone who will squeeze every last drop of life.”
What would we be surprised to know about you?
I am incredibly shy.
What is your spirit animal?
Do you have any family traditions?
Celebrating Dia De Los Muertos. We build an altar for our loved ones, paint sugar skulls and make a big Mexican feast. I am always in Chicago for the holidays and for years I sing or play my violin with my sisters at different places. I’ve been doing that since I was 12.
Do you have a favorite charity?
The National Ataxia Foundation because my mother suffers from Ataxia, a rare neurological disorder affecting her ability to walk, talk, breathe and use fine motor skills.
What’s your favorite way to decompress?
I really love my solitude. It gives me a chance to reboot my brain and concentration. You can truly find your voice in the silence. When I get a chance to, I disconnect my phone and listen to a playlist of my favorite classical music. The first song is always Bach's “Air on G String.”
