Favorite season and why?

Autumn is my favorite season. The air is crisp and cool; the foliage is ablaze with an array of colors, from deep reds to vibrant oranges and yellows. The season evokes a sense of nostalgia, energy, and coziness that fills me up. As a kid, I learned to appreciate the unique opportunities that fall brings, with new people, places, and experiences to discover. The excitement of getting new school supplies and diving into new activities was unmatched. One of the things I love most about autumn is the chance to wear layers of clothes, sip on warm drinks, and indulge in hearty comfort foods like beef stew and apple pie. The anticipation of Halloween, my birthday, and Thanksgiving adds an extra layer of joy to the season. The crisp air, the colors, the tastes, and the sense of excitement make autumn my favorite time of the year.

The most special thing I own is...

My grandmother gave me a small horseshoe-shaped diamond ring. The ring was initially given to her by her first love as a promise ring when they were young. Although the diamonds are tiny chips, the ring's sentimental value is priceless.

If I could have dinner with anyone—dead or alive—I would pick...

I would love to have dinner with Tia and Tamera Mowry or Venus and Serena. They are pairs of sisters who seem to have a loving relationship. I enjoyed watching Tia on their TV show, Sister, Sister. The episode where they got lost in downtown Detroit or sunk their car in the lake seems like a situation my sister and I could have gotten into. The Mowry twins are successful without being pretentious. I also admire Venus and Serena because of the challenges they have overcome and their confidence throughout their careers, which is unmatched. During dinner, I would like to discuss their personal lives, including motherhood, and their experiences as businesswomen. Additionally, since Tia is a cookbook author and cooking show host, I would like to ask her about her favorite recipes and cooking
