What’s your favorite part of KOC? My favorite part is working with the kids. I love to help them learn and learn from them. Seeing the kids smile is one of the best feelings in the world!
If you could go back and meet your childhood self, what advice would you give? The advice I would give to myself would be to not be so hard on myself. No one is perfect and no one expects you to be.
