How long have you worked with CARES? 4 years 

Favorite food? Sushi

Favorite Hobbies? Drawing, sleeping, video games, and working out. 

Why do you like working with kids? Knowing I can impact children in a positive way makes me happy. Creativity is also huge for me; making children realize that they can be as creative as they want and use their imagination without being judged is the greatest thing to see.
