What is your favorite color?
If you could walk out tomorrow and go anywhere – where would it be and why?
I would take lunch to my daughters at school because I love to surprise them!

Africa, so I could see what it is really like.
What do you most want people to understand about being incarcerated that you don’t think they understand?
That being away from your family can really break it apart if you don’t have faith! When the judge tells you that you have a life sentence, it feels as if you actually have a death sentence. For that is what it actually is, a natural death sentence.
