In her spare time, she enjoys fine dining experiences, playing turn-based strategy games, exploring and participating in motorsports, reading challenging books, learning new facts, and spending time with good friends and family. Here is something special about me, “I was taught to enjoy and to accept the differences in all people. This is what makes me unique.”
