What do you like best about being a Marlborough Junior?

Finally feeling like I am giving back. It filled a huge hole in my heart.

Has Marlborough Juniors contributed to your leadership skills and experience?

Yes. Being a Junior is encouraging me to reach out to my community; to pick up the phone and ask random strangers, “How can we help?” It’s not something I have had to do much of in the past and it’s helping me grow as a person.

Being a Junior has also helped me widen my community outreach at work when soliciting donations for Junior-related efforts. People at work are starting to think of me as an active Social Mission participant; I’ve been here 14 years and this is a new label. One I’m very proud to wear.

What do you do in your spare time? Provide a fun fact about yourself.

I’ve recently returned to kickboxing. It’s something I’ve loved since my early 20s and am psyched to have back in my life.
I love to travel; I have a bucket list of places I want to visit and a map on my wall at home where I record all previous destinations.
I am an engineer by degree, but actually love the arts and sciences more than any amount of data analytics ☺ I have walls of poetry books at home, and try to create Mixed Media art pieces in my spare time.

What is your guilty pleasure (TV show, sweet treat, etc.)?

Loose leaf tea!

What are you passionate about?

Women’s rights, LGBT rights, civil rights, human rights. I abhor prejudice and racism.

What is your favorite app or social media outlet?

I use a lot, and try to stay on top of them because of my day job as a web design strategist for an online support & community website. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest… But my favorite has to be the new Face filters in Snapchat. They make me laugh.

What is your dream vacation spot?

There are so many places I would like to visit, it’s impossible to name one. However, the one place I would return to again and again would be The Caves resort in Negril, Jamaica.

If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the Title should be?

“A different kind of crazy”
