I would work on lowering the prices of college across the nation so everyone could afford an education.

My grandparents are the biggest role models of my life. They have taught me teamwork and faith. Their best quality has to be their open mindedness and unconditional love for people.

If you could time travel, where would you go?
I would travel to the past and revisit loved ones who passed away so I can see them again.
