If you could change anything about the world, what would it be? If I could change anything about the world, I would eliminate religious discrimination. Though I know I can't change everyone's opinions, I can at least educate people about other religions, instead of the widespread stereotypes. Maybe a world full of more religious understanding and respect can pave the road for less wars and more global harmony.
What has been your most significant accomplishment in life? Why? I have pretty much lived a sheltered life, and have not been able to do much. But once I graduate, I'm going to show the world I can take care of myself and be strong on my own.
Who would you consider to be your role model and why? I would consider my oldest sister, Tori, to be my role model. She is not afraid to stand out from the crowd, and when she does she is still a kind and compassionate person. She understands me and when I can, I look to her for advice. She always tries to help me out as much as she can...even when she is exhausted.
