What are your hobbies?
I like to read and go to the beach.
What would you do if you were invisible for a day?
I’d shadow my professors to see what they really say about their students.
If you could have dinner with anyone, who would it be?
John F. Kennedy. There are so many conspiracies surrounding his life and I’d like to hear from him on what really happened.
What event in history would you have liked to have witnessed?
The French Revolution. I’d like to know what really happened. Did Marie Antoinette really say ‘Let them eat cake?”
What is your favorite childhood memory?
I have two sisters. We’re all in our 20s. When we were young my father would have us all draw pictures of something – like a heart. Then he would pick out who did the best and we’d all talk about it. It was so nice having a father spend all that time with his daughters.
Who is your hero, someone who inspires you?
My aunt, Jaqueline. She has her own accounting firm in New York. Like my mother, she was raised in the Dominican Republic. I admire her work ethic.
