If you could cure one disease in the world what it be?
Hmm..I have to say the negative mind. There is a lot of people out there who suffer because of the thoughts they have. There is a lot of problems in the world because people see others as “bad” or “not as good” as they are and find ways to fight or put others down. If I could change something in the world, it would be the negative mind of others and replace if with positive thinking and attitude.
What advice would you give the teenage you?
Life keeps getting better – pursue your dreams and enjoy the journey.
One person living or dead you would love to hang out with for a day? What would you do?
I would love to hang out with Noam Chomsky – I think he has an incredible mind and has made an impact in the world – fields of linguistic, socioeconomics, politics, and the list goes on and on. If I could meet with him, I would probably go for a walk around Charles River and learn about who he is and what motivates him on a daily basis.
What is your favorite novel and what does it say about your mind?
It probably is Sophie’s World – It probably inspired me to research, to ask questions, see things through different eyes, and understand that sometimes, you just don’t know the answer to your question.
Do you think World Peace is possible? What one thing do you think might be the first step in the direction of it?
I believe anything is possible – we just got to believe and make it happen with a positive mind and attitude. We rely so much on politicians to make changes and forget that a lot of the changes must happen first within our souls, houses, communities…
Name a place you would like to visit? I actually recently made a list of places to visit..

What is your favorite Inspirational quote?
I would say it differently..my motto is happiness is a choice. I choose happiness.
Do you think humans should be concerned about the planet?
Most certainly! We should all be concerned about it. Regardless of how long we live, others should get to enjoy the beauty this world has to offer and it is up to us to protect and maintain it.
