“Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.” –Oscar Wilde. Sarina likes this quote because it reminds her to be true to herself and make choices that are best for her. She thinks it’s important to be happy with who you are.

Five years from now Sarina wants to see herself as a returned sister missionary and going to college at BYU.
