My best friend de-pancing me in the 6th grade in front of the entire class.

Consumed 15,000 calories in a day.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

What is your greatest achievement and how has it shaped you?
Hitting road blocks in my life and still being able to keep a positive attitude, while always finding a way to work around, through or over them. Each obstacle I've been faced with whether it was a Division 1 Basketball Scholarship being stripped from me or just having to find drive and motivation on days I'm out of my zone has continuously showed me that life is about how you react to circumstances and situations not merely what happens.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be and how would you use it?
Invincibility. I'd be riding sharks and free jumping out of planes.
