Your most embarrassing date moment?
Although I consider myself to be of moderate intelligence, I wasn't born in the US, so I wasn't taught a lot of commonly known slang terms and concepts growing up. Once, while on a date, my date mentioned something about "baby boomers." Naturally, I thought this was some sort of a terrorist bomb squad, and went on to talk about the perils of terrorism.
What career accomplishment are you most proud of?
It's not necessarily a career accomplishment, but, being presented an award by President Obama for my work with my non-profit, when I was 23 years old, was pretty surreal. In hindsight, it felt like an out-of-body experience and something I'm incredibly grateful for.
