What is your favorite MYS-specific story/memory?
The Christmas Party, seeing and meeting Gardner Employees for the first time. Also eating delicious Lobster.
Another memory would be our Halloween Parties and dressing up.

Where’s the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
The best place I have traveled was this year back in May when I went to Amsterdam. It was beautifully wonderful! I loved all the colorful buildings and seeing how clean the city was. The history behind some of the buildings in Amsterdam was awesome to learn about. Everyone there was super nice and welcoming. Even if I almost did get hit by a biker.

What do you like best about Cincinnati?
All the fun activities Cincinnati has to offer. The city is different every weekend and there is always something new to do. Also, there are always new restaurants to try.
