Q: Do you have a favorite pick up line?

A: Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile.

Q: Who is your role model?

A: My mom is my role model. She was an immigrant, and we don’t really see what it’s like, the hardships and all. You hear that they came here with $5 and for me, that’s lunch. How do you not spend that within a minute?

Q: If you could bring someone back to life, who would it be?

A: My Grandpa. I miss him a lot. I grew up with him. When I was little, my mom came back to America and I lived with my grandparents. My grandma is still alive but my grandpa is gone.
