What tools or habits do you use to keep organized?

"I use various dry erase boards, planners, alarms and mental notes. I am constantly on the move."

What do you worry about?

"I am always concerned about my residents. I want to make sure they are transitioning well. They seem to be doing well, but it is something I still worry about. I am hoping classes go well and making sure I meet requirements for my scholarship."

If you could be any animated character, who would you be and why?

If you could be anyone in the world, who would it be?

"I would be myself. I wouldn't trade my life for anyone else's, for the hardships and the easy times. It has made me who I am. It would be pretty cool to be a celebrity, but it would get tiring."
