Q. Who is your all time favorite actor?

Tom Hanks. I love "Forrest Gump," "Sleepless in Seattle," "Philadelphia," "BIG," "Toy Story." I'm not a huge fan of "Castaway," but I guess when you're stuck on a deserted island, you can't be picky about your friends so a volleyball will have to do!

Q. Who inspires you and why?

My mother inspires me most. She's fearless, strong and beautiful.

Q. What kind of music do you dance to?

I dance to hip-hop. Because ... why doesn't every one dance to hip-hop?

Q. What one disease would you like to see wiped out in your lifetime?

While there are many, I would put HIV/AIDS first. Like with cancer and many others, it's hard to watch someone slowly die without any form of a cure. It affects the individual and also everyone around them who cares for them. I also would wipe out the world's hunger issues if I could. Everyone should have available food and clean water.

Q. What would make you a better person than you already are?

I think if I would quit smoking cigarettes I would be a better person.
