Where is your favorite vacation spot?
Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii. The green mountains and dark blue waters are gorgeous.

I would love to be able to speak Spanish. I have been on 4 mission trips to Honduras and the Dominican Republic. I have really enjoyed my time being there, but it would have been so much better if I could speak Spanish.

Mowing yards during the summer. It was a good job. I was making on average $8 an hour when the minimum wage was $3.35.
