Where were you born? I was born in New Orleans, La.

What is your favorite restaurant in Houston, and at that restaurant your favorite dish? My favorite restaurant in Houston is Dak & Bop, and I love the spicy garlic Korean fried wings!

Complete this sentence: Most people wouldn’t know that I … am an aunt of 12 nieces and nephews! I only have one brother and one sister so you can imagine the madness at my house around the holidays. My nieces and nephews are my inspiration because they look up to me. They are my babies!

What are some of your personal hobbies? I love to host karaoke parties on the weekends with my friends because music is good for your health, and you can always count on a good laugh. I travel as often as I can, especially back home for a dose of beignets. I also love to do yoga and kick box.
