If I had a super power it would be teleportation. I have so many family members and friends that are spread out throughout the US and the world. I would love to be able to visit them whenever I want!
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The best piece of my advice I have received is so simple… “Stop being afraid.” I have applied this to so many aspects of my life (work, friendships, philanthropy, dating). If I gather up the courage to doing something that makes me uncomfortable or to take risks, it ends up to be so rewarding.
