What is your favorite place in San Diego?
One of my favorite places in San Diego is Sunset Cliffs. This has been one of my go-to places to relax, hangout with friends, and enjoy a beautiful sunset.
What is your favorite family tradition?
My family has a tradition of getting together Christmas Eve to prepare for Christmas dinner. We all gather at one designated house where everyone comes with their delicious homemade dishes and desserts. We wait and countdown to midnight, and then have Christmas dinner together. After a lot of eating, we continue the celebrations by opening gifts and playing a few games.
Do you have any pets? Do you have a favorite pet?
Yes, I have an American Shorthair Calico kitty. She’s very playful and likes to go outside. She easily became friends with the cat next door. You can find them both playing in the yard, on the roof, or in the trees.
