What was your first job?
Receptionist at my family’s healthcare clinic

I’d like to travel to:
Egypt and see the Great Sphinx and the Pyramids of Giza, travel down the Nile, and discover its beaches.

When you were 8 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A dancer. I love dancing and still get emotional when I watch a Cirque du Soleil performance or the show “So You Think You Can Dance” and get to witness the passion of those who have made dancing into their profession.
