What do you love about nature?
Nature has always been beautiful to me. Ever since I was little it had the capability for me to get lost in its beauty and feel peace. I am able to not think about anything that can make me preoccupied.
I often think that nature is underappreciated and people begin to get wrapped up in social media. I think that it’s important to put distractions aside from time to time and to appreciate what’s around them and the natural beauty that is given to us.
When do you feel most at peace?
I feel most at peace in the ocean surfing. I am able to only focus on the sounds of the water hitting the bottom of my surfboard. There is nothing else to do except focus on the beautiful ocean and the waves that nature creates. I am fortunate enough to be able to participate in a sport I love while enjoying nature and those around me. Surfing is such a relaxing sport while bringing peace and a healthy mental state to many people.
What is your fondest memory of the beach life?
My fondest memory is going to the beach with my family when I was younger. We would spend hours playing in the water and laying on the beach. I would have endless fun making sand castles and finding many things to do while I was young. I had such amazing memories when I was young, I grew up to love the beach and love being in any body of water.
What is your approach to fitness?
For me fitness is a very personal journey. I believe that everyone should want to be fit on their own terms and set their own goals instead of desiring to chase after how someone else looks. I love to be active and focus on my own fitness achievements. I try my best to go to the gym, surf, go on hikes/walks, and eat healthy. I will reach my fitness goals when I have achieved what I have wanted too without comparing myself to others.
Describe your personality in three words.
Outgoing. Friendly. Active.
What do you look for in a partner?
I have many qualities that I look for in a partner. I would love for them to be outgoing, respectful, caring, goofy, goal oriented, and to be passionate about fitness and being outdoors. These are important to me because this is the type of people I would want to spend my time with and I could see myself having feelings for. I would love someone who would be active with me and to be in nature with me as well.
Tell us your favorite way to spend time with friends.
I love to do many activities with friends. My favorite way to hang out with friends is to do activities where we can get to know each other better and talk. I love to get closer to my friends because friendship is very important to me. I love having a good time with my friends while laughing and doing fun activities.
If you could take one celebrity/public figure surfing, who would it be and why?
If I could take a celebrity surfing, I would love to take Bethany Hamilton. She persevered after her shark attack and it did not prevent her from doing what she loves. She is an inspiration as she is a professional surfer and doing what most people could not imagine being able to do.
