Who is your hero?

My heroes are my parents. They immigrated to this great country under difficult circumstances in order to provide my sister and I with the opportunity to attain the American Dream. I will always be grateful for that.

What do you like best about Los Angeles?

I love many things about Los Angeles: The fact that we have beautiful mountains, beaches and an island, an hour away. World-class shopping any direction you feel like driving. World-class dining. Multiple ethnic enclaves that can make any local feel like they are experiencing another country or at least many cultural aspects of it: Koreatown, Persian Square, Chinatown, the San Gabriel Valley, Little Bangladesh, Thai Town, Little Ethopia and Armenia, Pico-Robertson, and so much more! The diversity is tremendous. Near perfect weather year round.
