- "My mom and I have a blast, she goes into convulsions when we watch Candid Camera."
- "Find something you're really interested in that you won't get tired of; research it, get into it."
- "In high school I was afraid of everything! I was afraid about making friends, all the cliques, I was really afraid because I switched from the gifted program to French immersion program. I didn't know how [the kids in that program] would treat me, because they'd been together for six years, so I was afraid of not fitting in."
