  4. What is your most embarrassing moment? In 9th grade, (Pre-Wesleyan) when I walked into the Dining Hall, it was packed with around 550 students. In my peripheral vision I saw someone spill literally a pile of lasagna and sweet tea off their lunch tray onto the floor. A few seconds later, I saw my friend in the lunch line and decided the most prudent thing to do was to run to the lunch line in order to jump in line with her. Unfortunately, I had forgotten the event that had just transpired. My friend started shaking her head frantically, but it was too late. My heel slipped on the lasagna-sweet tea combo freshly splashed on the floor of the lunchroom. My feet went skyward as my skull rocketed toward the ground; however, I prevented myself from getting a concussion by grabbing the railing bordering the lunch line at the last second, saving me from a little more humiliation than I had just endured in the last two seconds. The plethora of students in the lunchroom were laughing hysterically at me. My sister was a senior at the time, and she refused to speak to me at school for the next few days.

  6. What is the theme song to your life? “Dream On” by Aerosmith.
