Time for the fun part…
Who inspires you?
Michelle: Anybody working hard to make a positive impact!

Rachel: Just about everyone inspires me to do or want to be something!
What was the best concert you’ve ever attended?
Michelle: Every Third Eye Blind concert I’ve ever attended! Also, Jon Bellion.
Kendall: I volunteered at Bonnaroo twice, so does that count? It was like a giant, floating, multi-day concert. But if I have to pick a specific one, probably City & Colour. All the feels.
Rachel: Zac Brown Bands Southern Ground Music Festival!

Kendall: In this moment, Arielle Vandenberg. She just seems like a good time.
