What are you most proud of?

My father passed away a few months before I graduated from university. It was a really difficult time for me and my family, but I was really proud that I had finished my degree.

What was the best gift you’ve ever received, and who was it from?

The best gift I’ve received are my Bose QuietComfort Headphones, and I got them from my best mate.

Describe the perfect weekend in Asbury Park.

The perfect weekend would be breakfast at a cute cafe, followed by a weekend workout at the gym, some time in the sun by a pool, and then of course Ascension.
