17. Where is your favorite place to volunteer/provide community service? Our Lady of Mount Carmel/St. Nicholas.

18. What is one hidden talent that you possess? Ambidextrous (I like to think I am at least).

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? Forward because life is always improving. I'd want to see all of the new inventions.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would pick a former President (probably Kennedy or Reagan) and ask them to tell me the truth about every popular conspiracy theory.
