What do you like to do in your free time?

If I could learn how to do one thing, what would it be?
“I have always wanted to learn how to kite surf because it is one of the few things I don’t know how to do in the ocean yet. I often see people doing this and get 15-20 feet up in the air. I think this would be a fun experience to learn.”

“Knowing that I gave it my best effort in whatever I do is how I define success.”
Where is your favorite place that you’ve traveled?
“I’ve been all over but my trip to Staniel Cay, Bahamas has been my favorite by far. The resort had numerous bungalows overlooking the gorgeous ocean. One of the coolest things about this resort was that we had our own private boat that allowed us to island hope and complete many excursions. There was so much to do and I never wanted to leave!”
