What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Hope Solo for her stoicism and competitiveness and Sandra Bullock for her effortless humor and charm. 
What scares you most about traveling? The language barrier and cultural differences. 

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing and experiencing new cultures, trying new things and stepping out of my comfort zone.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: I think the biggest challenge will be admitting when we need help. We are both independent and strong-willed.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Beth tends to not always state her true feelings during team meetings. She also hates asking for help.
