Why do you want to be on ATJ? I love being both physically and mentally challenged. I think there's more to life than spending it in a cubicle.
Why do you think you can win ATJ? I'm young and I think people look at me as curly hair, cute, na´ve girl. I could beat most of the people on this wearing my stilettos.
What are your strengths? My mental toughness and intellect are some of my biggest strengths.
Weaknesses? I'm a control freak. A complete Type-A personality.
What are your best qualities? No matter what I do, I put 110% into it. I'm very competitive and very driven.
Worst? I'm competitive and I have to work to make my competitiveness as a positive rather than a negative.
