CHI’S TAKE ON BIRTHDAYS
Which birthday do you remember looking forward to most — and why? I was most looking forward to my 21st birthday! I wanted to go to Las Vegas. To be able to play on the slot machines!
Name your top three mandatory birthday treats/indulgences. Strawberry cake w/cool whip and fresh strawberries on top! Butter pecan ice cream! Vanilla ice cream cone dipped in chopped nuts!
Which birthday would you love to re-live — and why? My 21st birthday! I had an amazing time in Las Vegas. My sister spent so much money on me. I was able to buy anything I wanted. Just the overall experience of turning 21!
What was the most unusual birthday gift you’ve ever received? I purchased my first home at the age of 21! I wanted to move out, and live on my own! So to purchase my first home at the age of 21 was amazing and unusual gift to myself!
Why did you decide to do a birthday campaign for individuals with disabilities? Working with individuals with disabilities is my passion! Just to be able to make one person smile is an amazing feeling! I love to help others, and I feel that individuals with disabilities need you the most! I’ve been helping with individuals with disabilities since high school, they’re amazing!
