Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years, I hope to be working for a non-profit in the Minneapolis area. I’d love to have a house or something, but with a non-profit’s salary, who knows? I just hope to be making a difference in peoples’ lives. Oh, and I will most definitely own an adorable dog.
