What teacher in school made the most impact on you and why? My high school literacy teacher really stands out. He challenged me and made me work hard – he had high standards which I really respected.
What is your best childhood memory? Summer beach vacations with my family were a lot of fun. We lived in Texas for a few years and would drive cross country to the North Carolina beaches to meet my cousins and grandparents. The long drive was the best part of the trip!
