Who is your favorite teacher?

I have been fortunate to have many great teachers in my life; however, my favorite teacher is my dad. He has taught me invaluable lessons, pushed me to do beyond what I thought was possible, and nurtured me in the process.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, attending festivals, and relaxing.
