SOMETHING SURPRISING Many in my family were firefighters — collectively over a century on the job. And at 17, I, too, decided to volunteer as a firefighter.
FAVORITE VACATION We’re not the best at planning vacations in advance so they tend to be spontaneous. Last year, we planned a trip to Israel in less than 24 hours.
RESOLUTION
KEPT
To do something I was scared of. That year, I rode a rollercoaster and went skydiving (indoors).
