What is the most impactful place you’ve visited and why?
In high school, I traveled to Italy and Greece for a senior trip. I felt so lucky to be able to immerse myself in the different cultures. The most impactful part was the day I spent in the Vatican City on Easter Sunday with Pope Benedict XVI. It was incredibly moving and an experience I will never forget.
What is your favorite Holiday?
Thanksgiving. It may not necessarily be my personal favorite, but it’s a memorable one in my family. For as long as I can remember, my Grandpa made it his personal mission to find the largest turkey each year for Thanksgiving, with the largest being 77 pounds (not including the stuffing!). I grew up with our family being on the news, in newspapers and the talk of a small west Michigan town.
What do you do to relax?
Puzzles! I love brain games in general; puzzles, sudoku, word searches, etc. However, puzzles are my favorite and something I can spend hours doing.
