Who is Your Most Inspiring Role Model?
Anyone who chooses kindness in all situations, makes their best effort even when it is not recognized, and sees the opportunity in every challenge.
What is Your Greatest Accomplishment?
Growing a tiny human and keeping him alive and happy 😊
What is your Spirit Animal?
The giraffe! I’ve always been tall, so that’s the first obvious connection with the tall and kind of awkward giraffe. But their inability to fit in with a crowd has its advantages, like the ability to get a different perspective and anticipate what may be coming at them. Giraffes are confident and self-assured, and value exploration and constant learning. They are loyal, protective, and observant.
