Three Thoughts:
My Capstone project would be on ... What happens when undercover agents return to their real lives?

One of my favorite books or authors is ... The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton was my favorite book in middle school. I still remember how my mind was blown when I read the last sentence of the book for the first time in seventh grade.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive who would it be? Why? ... I would have dinner with Thomas Jefferson and Malcolm X. I spent a lot of time in college studying their writings and the intentions historians have laid at their feet. I would like definitive answers to some of the questions I have about their decisions.
