Q:What is the craziest thing you have ever done?
A: A few years ago our family went on a vacation to Jamaica. While we were there, my Dad had decided that we should try parasailing. At first I thought there was no way I would ever do something as crazy as that. The initial takeoff was without a doubt the scariest and wildest feeling I have ever gone through in my life! I think I lost my voice from the non-stop screaming as the boat pushed us higher and higher into the sky. Once we were totally airborne the fear went away and it was incredible to view the entire island from the sky. I would definitely try parasailing again someday.

Q: Do you cook and/or bake anything? If so, what are your special dishes?
A: I actually do not cook much but I do bake brownies and cookies for my family on a weekly basis. My younger brother and sister love when I bake them brownies or I make them for my friends which they greatly appreciate.

Q: If you were handed 10 million dollars, what would you splurge on?
A: I think I would spend the money on the following: Buy a cool car (Mercedes Benz 650 SL Convertible), ensure the cost of my college and the cost of my sister and brothers college was paid for and I would give a portion to my parents so my Dad would not have to work anymore.

Q: If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Angelina Jolie. I feel that the amount of humanitarian work she continues to do with third world countries, orphanages and the poor in general is an example all of us can and should follow.

Yes, she was blessed with a great acting career. But she enjoys giving back and helping others. I believe it is important to have that type of balance in your life and to be grounded enough to appreciate what you have been given and how to help others less fortunate then you.

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)?
A: I have an extremely vivid memory and I tend to pick up on details that other people do not notice. For example, I can remember what people wear, especially the first time we meet. If I don't see that person for some time and then run into them, I am able to tell them what they were wearing the first time we met.
