Favorite anecdote associated with being on the show:
The crazy pool parties that the teen contestants and I had at the Beverly Hilton.

Did being on Jeopardy! have any affect on your life?
Jeopardy! was a dream come true for me. I think meeting the other teen tourney folks had the greatest effect; we still keep in touch, and they share college experiences.

I bought a clarinet and went to Europe. Other than that, everything is in the bank for college.

Is there anything else you would like viewers to know about you?
My new goal--traveling around the world with Doctors Without Borders. I plan on double majoring in biology and English in college.
