Hobbies, fun facts and interests
I too like the outdoors! I love the beach—give me volleyball or spike ball at the beach and I’m a happy camper. I have music playing at all times and will sing embarrassingly loudly, especially when driving. I’m obsessed with food and love finding random/hole in the wall places. I’m always working on adding more stamps to my passport. Most recently I did 3 weeks solo through Italy (that’s what the end of 4th year is for right??)
Amazing training! Ask anyone that rotated here/trained here/knows people that trained here. I know I’ll be challenged and learn way more than I could ever imagine. Huge plus that it’s close to home and fun outdoor things. During interviews, I noticed how well I got along with everyone that I met. I talked with a resident about Game of Thrones for at least an hour! It felt like a big, loud family and that was really important for me when making my list.
