1) Where in WI do you currently live? I'm in Menomonie for college, although I've lived in Wausau all my life.

2) Do you like it there?
Wausau is great. We've got a unique local culture with a very high percentage of Hmong population (approx. 12% I believe). Also Wausau is ever expanding, being a great resource for jobs and business.

As for Menomonie, I think the only thing it has going for it is the university. It's a small, largely uneducated town where the students make up at least half of the town's population.

3) Were you born in WI? If so, where?
Yep, in Wausau.

4) If born out of state, how/why did you end up here. Do you like living here?
N/A

5) Whats your favorite city/town in the state?
Other than Wausau, I like Hudson, La Crosse, and Eau Claire.

6) Whats your favorite region of the state?
The western region not only has some exciting cities, it has beautiful landscape, from rolling hills to cliffs formed by the glaciers.

7) What do you like least about the state?
Snow is awful, not much sun in the winter, if you don't live in at least a mid-sized city, you might feel disconnected from the world (may be a plus for some).

8) What do you like most about the state?
Top-notch public schools, from primary all the way up to high school and university level education.

9) Whats your favorite state park/recreation area in the state?
Door County is a fun trip, although I'm admittedly not huge on WI's country side.

10) If you could move somewhere else, where would you like to go?
I'm planning on relocating to CA after I graduate college because of the superior weather and job market, as well as a more progressive community.

11) What's a major life goal for you?
To start my own dietitian practice, and have a family.

12) What do you do for a living? I'm a university student at UW Stout. I plan on becoming a dietitian after I graduate with a BS in Dietetics.

13) If you could move the Capital of Wisconsin to a different city, where?
Madison suits our capital very well I'd say. I wouldn't want it to be anywhere else.
