I’m fun, playful, and carefree—and an unconditional family member and friend. Adventurous and cultural, I’m always down to try something new and enjoy each moment. My friends describe me as an artist and lover of the arts. It’s hard for them to kid me about anything because I normally make fun of myself before they get to!
