The Proust Questionnaire has its origins in a parlor game popularized (though not devised) by Marcel Proust, the French essayist and novelist, who believed that, in answering these questions, an individual reveals his or her true nature.
We ask members of the Board of Directors to answer 5 questions from The Proust Questionnaire.

1.What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Nothing is perfect, but my idea of “perfect” happiness is being balanced with everything in life. Being able to spend the right amount of time between friends and family as well as my school work. I honestly could not be the happy person I am today without being able to balance out my life correctly. Or I can just go to Disneyland…Happiest Place on Earth!
2.What is your greatest fear?
Not living up to other’s expectations or even my expectations. I push myself to be the best I can be to not only myself but others around me.
3.What is your most treasured possession?
I recently went to Disneyland and got a Grape Soda pin from the movie Up! It is my absolute favorite Disney-Pixar movie and have wanted one ever since I watched the movie for the first time.
4.What is your most marked characteristic?
Probably my sense of humor. I am pretty hilarious if you ask me or my friends. Or that I am always busy.
5.What do you most value in your friends?
They love to eat as much as I do! I am not from Sacramento so it is nice to have friends to go to at the end of the day to spend an hour or two making dinner and enjoying each other’s company.
