Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
The most positive influences in my life are my parents. They are hard workers and they are always happy, no matter what hand they've been dealt.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would like to finish my education, pursue a commission and become a helicopter pilot.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place to me would be Spain, just because everything is different. They have great food, good people and a completely different culture.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite book is "Three Cups of Tea." It's a book about how one man is out to change the future of education in Afghanistan.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet Gen. George S. Patton. He was a great leader, cocky and profane. His men believed they couldn't be defeated while under his command.
