My Biggest Pet peeve would have to be when people start beatboxing. I just can’t handle it.

Who is your hero?
This is a really easy one for me to answer and you might know who I’m going to say before you even read the rest of this. But it’s by far going to be Dylan Rieder.
He was truly the the full package—amazing at everything he did, and more importantly, an amazing friend. I didn’t know him for long, but in the few months I did, he showed me so much and taught me how to treat others. It’s crazy to look up to someone so much and then when you meet them they exceed your expectations of all the theories you have made up in your mind about that person. He’s truly the best and I’m blessed to have known him all thanks to Mark Oblow.
