If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why do you like this place so much?

Jamaica because I’m interested in their culture, music, and food; I’ve always wanted to go there growing up as a kid.

Some traits that attract me to someone would be their smile, someone with a good sense of humor because I love to laugh, someone that puts family first, someone who’s physically fit and likes sports and the outdoors, someone who is trustworthy, competitive, happy, and loving.

My favorite memory at UH was when I went 7/7 from the three point line and set the record of consecutive three pointers for UH men’s basketball.
