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.
