What was your favorite subject in school and why?

My favorite subject was English because I was able to foster my love of reading by being exposed to different genres of literature that I probably wouldn’t have read or wanted to read! English classes helped me to explore different perspectives on life and become a more well-rounded person.

What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy reading, walking, and listening to podcasts in my free time. I also like to catch up with my family and friends by watching sports or playing board games
