    My Answers Contd...

    10. What is the noblest thing you've ever done? I found money on the ground and instead of keeping it I brought it to the customer service/lost and found desk.
    11. What is the dumbest thing you ever said? “Is that the empire state building?” (While driving through downtown Raleigh)
    12. What was the happiest moment of your life?
    The happiest moment in my life would probably have to be when my step dad woke my brother and I up on Christmas Eve morning and asked us for permission to ask my mom to marry him. I was so happy for them and for my mom…they were high school sweet hearts and they were brought back into each others lives and I just felt a tremendous amount of happiness for both of them and that he was going to be a part of our family.
