Weird Factoid: I have a very serious Chipotle Burrito Bowl addiction. Intervention is long overdue.
Someone You Admire and Why: I would have to say that I admire my dad, Poppa Lidsky. He's someone who has always instilled the importance of hard work and independence in me. He raised me to believe that there are no limits to what I could achieve. I know that I can always go to him for advice, and he will never steer me wrong. I'm so proud to be my father's daughter!
