What is one of your favorite things to do in Pittsburgh?
I personally love to go to The View when I get the time. It's a view point on top of a mountain, the area I believe is called Mount Washington and from there you can see almost the entire city of Pittsburgh in all its glory. One can go there during any time of the day, I personally have gone there during night time and it's surreal! The entire city lights make it an unforgettable sight!

What is something people may not know about you?
I am not much of an introvert, so if I like someone and they make me feel comfortable, then they'll know pretty much everything they need to about me. There are obviously certain things I keep to myself, and I prefer they remain so.

Why'd you choose the MS-ISM program?
I can't run out of good things to say about the program. It's a perfect blend of technical and theoretical knowledge and the professors are tremendous! My background was Accountancy, Economics, etc. and I minored in Computers, but I am still very comfortable with the program. Professors do start from the basics. There are also plenty of job opportunities in this program which also influenced my decision to take this up. Let's be honest, we all want good jobs and we want them fast! So, in my opinion this program opens a lot of doors for me!

What is your favorite movie?
Umm...I have a lot of favorites and depending on how I am feeling, I'll pick one to play. I have watched KungFu Panda about 11-14 times, so that is a favorite. I also love Chris Evans' Gifted very much, seen it a multiple time. Also, my favorite horror me hands down in Oculus.

In my free time, I like to...
I like to YouTube. I have a channel of my own called PinkGiraffe on which I share a bunch of skincare remedies, lifestyle enhances, etc. And on days I get tired and bored of being on YouTube, I read a book! I love requesting and borrowing books from the public library here. The one I am currently reading is And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.
