Q. If you had ONE chance for a 'do-over', what would you change in your life?

Q. What is something you're sure only you do?
A. Kiss my puppy and my boyfriend goodbye each morning when I leave for work. 

Q. What group are you most proud to be part of?

Q. What do you miss most about being a kid?
A. Not having to pay bills and being a free spirit.

Q. If you could ask one question to all of the Springboard America members, what would it be?
A. If you could be anyone for a day... who would it be?
