Really good at: Multitasking and time management.
Known for: Being a really good friend and loyalty. Making people laugh and laughing at myself. Eating a Peppermint Pattie like a mouse!

Guilty as charged: Reality TV – I still watch Survivor! My laugh, aka my “cackle”, and french fries – I can’t say no!
