Jennifer Young from "The Amazing Race 2011" is one of the contestants on Season 19 of the CBS reality competition series. She is teamed up with her brother Justin Young. She is a 26-year-old special education teacher from Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Here is an interview with Jennifer Young ("Amazing Race 19"):

Describe what you do: I teach kids to reach beyond the limits of their labels.

How will these skills help you win The Race? Teaching special education has taught me that the sky is the limit and the only stumbling block is you. Patience, caring and understanding come with this job too.

Three words to describe you: Outgoing, determined and loving.

Favorite hobbies: Reading, napping and watching TV.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Taraji P. Henson because she is classy and sassy.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Taye Diggs because he's smart, charming and always smiling.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? I'm very proud of my teaching career as a whole. It takes a special person to teach and an extra special person to teach special education.

What scares you most about traveling? Losing my passport and having to rot in some foreign prison for a crime I didn't commit—a la "Brokedown Palace."

What excites you most about traveling? Meeting new people and seeing beautiful places.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I'm always the kid sister in his eyes. He doesn't always listen to me or take my word without double checking. This Race is fast and we won't have time for that.

Pet peeve about your teammate: His whistling. Arrgh!

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Italy. I am fascinated and caught up in the beauty of the people, art, language and architecture.

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other then winning one million bucks)? I hope to grow closer and have a good time. We want to see the world and meet, greet and touch the people in it.
