Something you would never guess about me / fun fact about me: I love to dance in my free time!

My favorite part about living in Little Rock: Little Rock is a small city, but with everything you need in the near vicinity. The people are extremely nice, the weather is never too unbearable, the city is simple and quiet and my co-residents are the best! And I love my apartment by the river.

My favorite place to eat in Little Rock: By the side of the Arkansas river, with my favorite people. Fav restaurants- too many to list here.

In my free time: I like to spend time with family and friends, practice dance and paint. Surprisingly I do get time for all that.
