Who or what has had an especially strong influence on the direction of your life?
I was definitely a procrastinator! The queen of all-nighters but I'm still convinced that I do my best work the night before! Despite all the procrastination, I was a hard worker, so although teachers cautioned against my study habits, I pretty much always pulled through with good grades. What was your first experience with service?
I volunteered with Student Conservation Association one summer and spent 3 months living in a cabin with 7 others in the beautiful White Mountains in New Hampshire, hiking and telling visitors about trails and taking kids on nature walks. We didn't' make much money, but it was worth it! What is the country you are most looking forward to visiting?
Peru. The Amazon, Machu Pechu, the Alti-Plano - I can't wait! What are you not so good at?
Saying No. There're so many wonderful people, and so much great stuff to do all the time that I often try to do it all, which only ends up wearing me out and shortchanging the experience. I need to realize that limiting myself to a few things can make those few things so much more worthwhile.
