To stop worrying about what others think of you.

What do you love most about where you live?

Friendly people and the fact that you can drive anywhere within a few minutes, even on the busiest of days.

First car was a Toyota Corolla.

I made lots of friends suddenly, which happens when you're in grade 12 and can drive with your own car.

What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?

I would say a fridge as without a fridge you can't have milk and without milk I can't have coffee.

What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?

1900's. would have been a totally different time, be interesting to see how things were done without technology.
