I view my friend Rob as a leader because he’s always doing what he wants to do and others gravitate towards him and he always finds good adventures for us to go on.

+ What's one thing you remember from Kindergarten or the early years of school?

I remember falling in the mud one day at recess and going to the nurse and they gave me oversized sweatpants to wear for the rest of the day and I was very embarrassed but now I wear sweats every day to class in college.
