Biggest Pet Peeve: A lack of manners or common courtesy
People of Influence (why?): Everyone in my family is extremely important to me. My parents have worked their hardest to give my sisters and me the world. Both of my sisters have helped and supported me through everything I've ever done. My oldest sister, Iliana, teaches me through her past experiences. My other older sister, Ivelis, has taught me that even if the sun isn't shining, your hard work isn't going to waste. Ivelis stands as my biggest role model with every step closer she gets to becoming a doctor.
