Some of Dana’s other interests are going out with her friends, her red Pontiac Sunfire, and her Maltese named Mickey. In addition to these things, Dana added, “I’m obsessed with music.”
Dana, who was born on February 23, 1990, has had many memorable experiences in her life which have been both happy and troublesome. When she was sixteen a benign tumor was discovered in her foot and it had to be surgically removed. She has also had her tonsils removed. Dana’s fondest memory was her trip to the Dominican Republic. She went there on vacation with her family after her second year of college. She recalls, “I was 20 years old and it was my first time on an airplane!” Her family had purchased a timeshare and they got to stay in their own villa by the beach. She remembers, “There was a pool in the backyard and it was right by the beach, so we could walk to it.” Dana has had many exciting experiences in her life already, and since she is graduating in May, she is sure to have many more.
