Where do you see yourself 10 years from now: “I want to be married with five kids, and I want to own five athletic centers: two in the United States and three outside of the United States.”

If you can travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why: “London, because I want to see Big Ben and it’s beautiful there.”

Most awkward moment: “When I was dead-on-time for my high school homecoming dance.  I was an hour early.”

Favorite part of Black History Month: “Getting to explore more than what I already know, and just to know more about my heritage.”

What qualities do you look for in a friendship: Someone who’s “[loyal,] fun, and just someone I can have good experiences with.”
