Favorite Place To Go

Hawaii is the most incredible place I've been too so far. My brother and I went on vacation there, and we had the time of our lives. Not only is the place beautiful, but the people are as well.

Favorite Way To Discover A Destination

On accident! Stumbling upon a new place by getting lost. I also love when work takes me to a new place.

Cool Amenity

The pool! I could spend all day in the pool on a hot day.

Travel Must-Haves

I can't travel without my headphones, my wallet, and my favorite ripped black jeans.

Amazing Hotel

The Grand Iberostar in Jamaica. I take a charity trip there every year; the all-inclusive resort is just incredible.

Most Memorable Meal

Probably the day I was celebrating booking my first movie. I was about six years old and I got to pick out the biggest lobster in the restaurant. It was about eight pounds!

Next On Travel Bucket List

I am going on a secret excursion soon for a bachelorette party. It will be my first and I am really excited!
