1. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
If I could travel anywhere in the world it would have to be Haiti. I heard so much about all of the destruction there and think I could be a help in the orphanages. If my dream to become a doctor comes true I would love to help those who need medical assistance there.
2. How does it feel to be called a role model?
Being called a role model is an honor and makes me feel special and recognized for some of the things I have done. However, I also feel that I am fortunate to be surrounded by role models, including my family, friends, and the other discovery girl finalists!
3. How can you work towards social justice in your lifetime?
I feel I can best can work towards social justice by demonstrating Christ-like actions; by respecting, giving, and showing compassion to everyone whether they have economic, religious, cultural, or ethnic differences. One day if I am able to make some money from my stories, I will use most of the money to help others less fortunate. When I become a doctor and get my pilots license I would like to fly to areas of the world where emergency medical care is needed, especially care for children. For now, I will continue to help others through service whenever possible.
