Favorite or most significant year in school and why: My favorite year of school would be my sophomore year because that was the year I discovered ‘ME’ and I also became an aunt for the first time.
Favorite book: My favorite historical book that was turned into a movie is “Of Mice and Men”.
Favorite food: My favorite food is shrimp, and I love it cooked, grilled, fried, or sautéed. (Is there any other way? If so, I am a believer…)
