What scares you most about traveling? Not being able to communicate with people because of language barriers.

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing different parts of the world and learning about their history and cultures. I'm a history nerd.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Liz needs to think through things with her brain before reacting to a situation. This is a constant issue we fight about.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She relies on me to do everything that is important and make all the difficult decisions.
