My mom's homemade lemon chicken has always been my favorite meal.

4. What's your favorite holiday? Why? 

I love Christmas like everyone else, but I love Easter too. Jesus rose from the dead (HOW COOL) (PRAISE JESUS). I think of beautiful colors and time with family and the beginning of such a happy time of year with great weather!

5. Being from out of state, what drew you to Auburn? 

My reason for coming to Auburn may sound scripted but it's very genuine. I wanted to go out of state but not just anywhere - I wanted to go somewhere that felt like home and Auburn felt like home and has become home in such a short amount of time. You don't find that just anywhere!
