What’s your favorite food to splurge with?
Do you have a particular dish you like?
I could eat the whole menu. Anything with roasted pork, I love.
What’s your favorite season?
Fall and winter. I hate summer.
What kind of animal would you be?
I would say a bird of paradise. I love that birds can go wherever they want to, plus birds of paradise are exotic, like myself.
What kind of plant would you be?
A black rose. It’s a hybrid, just like me. My mom is Jamaican and Chinese; my dad is Irish.
What kind of car would you be?
A Volkswagen Bug. You’d be surprised what comes in small packages.
What are you most grateful for?
The few friends I’ve made in D.C. They’re like my substitute family.
What’s something you want more of?
Patience. I’m so impatient.
State your life philosophy in 10 words or less.
I don’t want to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death.
