If you could do another job just for one day, what would it be?
I would want to work with an animal rescue team.  

Hmm, rescue team. Do you have a dog?
Yes, I have a rescue Great Dane/German Shepherd named Geno.

Where is the best place you’ve traveled, and what makes it the best? Hawaii—it’s so beautiful and serene. I would love to have a long vacation there some day.

Do you have a hobby? If so, what do you enjoy? 
Yes, boxing!

Boxing?! We’re intrigued. Tell us more about how you were introduced.
My friends signed up for a membership. I went with them to try it and I was hooked! Best workout ever.

What is one thing you cannot resist? 
My grandma’s home cooked fried chicken—there’s nothing like it anywhere.

What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13? 
Your life will get much more exciting in 10 years. (I was 23 when I moved to Los Angeles.) 

Los Angeles? So, what brought you to Atlanta?
I was in a long-distance relationship, and I decided to move to LA to be closer to him. From there, we have since relocated to the Atlanta area. 

What would people be surprised to know about you? 
I am bilingual; my second language is Cambodian. My mom is Cambodian/Thai, and her parents speak very little English. I learned to speak Cambodian fluently as a toddler so I could talk to my grandparents.
