What is special about your hometown?
Something that is special about my hometown is that it is very small with only a train track running through it.
It is an old gold mining town, tucked within the pine trees.

What is your favorite place in your hometown?
In my hometown I find peace at the American River. It is a long hike to a swimming hole named “the bubble bath”.
I used to always go there just to feel some freedom.

How would you describe yourself in one word?
One word that describes me – eclectic.

3 things that make you feel sexy?
Three things that make me feel sexy would have to be red wine, thigh high socks and dim lit rooms.

Favorite food?
Cheese Pizza, baby

What’s your favorite zoo animal?
I’m not a fan of zoos. But I do love penguins ! They are so cute quirky.

What is your morning ritual?
I wake up, lay in bed for a bit to mentally prepare for the day, make coffee, smoke a tobacco bowl, snuggle myself in my favorite white fluffy blanket, finally urge myself to get dressed and then I go out. I love running errands in the morning.

Where have you never been but want to go?
I would love to go to Africa. I want to experience a completely new culture.

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Jack Kerouac. He is an American poet and novelist from the Beat Generation. He wrote without filter about all of the injustices that were occurring during the 40’s. I would love to hear what he has to say about our world today. My favorite quote by him which I have cut out and hanging over my bed is, “The only ones for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved…”

Who is your celebrity crush?
This is so embarrassing but I have to stay true to my 12 year old self. Justin Bieber is my celebrity crush.

5 things I can’t live without?
1. Music 2. Bodies of water 3. My cat 4. Books 5. A lighter

What’s something you enjoy doing in your free time?
In my free time I like to write poetry. It feels good.

What Social Media Platform do you use?
The only social media platforms I use are Instagram and Snapchat. I still have a Twitter but I don’t go on it.

Cake or ice cream?
Cake
