Get to know Ann Sumner:

  1. Who is your role model? My role model is my grandmother, SJ. I have never met anyone who cares for others like she does. She is the kindest person I know, and I would love to be just like her.


  1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? I would live in England because I love its historical nature, enjoy the rain, speak the language, and could easily travel to different countries across Europe.

9. If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? A Ben and Jerry's Flavor Guru        because I would get to design different ice-cream flavors.


  1. If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you bring? A sailboat, a Kindle with unlimited books, and my water bottle
