If you could invent a Jeopardy! category, what would it be?
It would probably be specific to me. WORLD GEOGRAPHY would probably be a dream category.

What happened when you found out you were going to be on Jeopardy!
Um, well I actually heard on a voicemail so I didn't have to worry about being on the phone with someone. I don't know. Just kinda shocked me. I was pretty excited.

Did you do anything special to prepare for today?
Uh, I tried--I mean--it seems like it's kinda hard to prepare to be on the show, but, uh, I looked at as much trivia as I could, which is not the easiest thing to do. But uh, just looked at, you know, books with questions and answers. They had a book about Jeopardy! questions, which probably won't appear, but... might have some, some information. Uh, I've haven't watched it a whole lot since I've been at school, since it's kinda hard. It's usually on when I'm at practice. But I used to watch it a lot at high school, middle school, when I can.

If you win the $100,000 what will you do with it?
If I won, I guess I'd really like to travel all the places that I could. I've spent some time in South America, but I'd like to go to some more countries like that.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Well, you know, there's definitely aspirations, just trying to figure out which I want to do. I'd like--I'd like to work for the UN, maybe that's what I want to do.
