“I broke my arm twice within two months when I was a baby. One of the neighbors’ kids tugged too hard on it, then my dad sat on it while it was healing. I have a lot of crazy baby stories. I was on the train with my grandma at one point in India and she handed me over to a random person who wanted to play with me. Then my mom comes back and she's like…where’s my baby??
One of the things that I loved doing the most as a kid was building things with my dad. There was this one Black Friday, we bought a new 65in TV and spent 6 hours setting it up and labeling all the wires. Then my dad decided that it wasn't big enough and we returned it.
Definitely the happiest moment of my life was this road trip I took with my parents and my uncle. We didn't plan anything. At one point we were driving and saw a rainbow so we just stopped in the middle of the road and took pictures on top of the rental car. My mom has pictures of me, my uncle, and my dad just racing around a dandelion field, it's so pure and wholesome.”
“You look really happy telling me about your family.”
