What do you think are some essential qualities to have to be a successful intern?  I think that the main essential quality for a successful intern to have is to listen to the feedback that you are given and put it to use. It is also important to be friendly and to work hard on the tasks that you are given.

What is your personal/family life like?  I have two roommates that are a mother and a son that have become my second family. I am an only child, so it is like having a brother and sister. Between my roommates and I, we have 4 dogs and they keep us busy. My parents live close by, and I see them often.

What are your interests, hobbies, and/or how do you like to spend your time?  My free time is spent reading, watching my favorite tv shows and movies, and traveling. This summer my roommates and I have planned a trip down to Tennessee to see their family which has become like my own.
