If you could be any animal, which would you be and why?

I would be the panda bear because they seem to be social and humble. I think they also have a strong spirit, as characterized by Jack Black’s character in Kung Fu Panda.

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting ♫♪♩♬ oh, what a good movie, Jared.

What question should we have asked? What's the answer?

You asked some really interesting ones! Maybe something that stands out or is different? It's unheard of, but I am a Baltimore Ravens fan from Pittsburgh (they are the ultimate rivals). An alternative: first job? Clearing tables and running food at a restaurant in high school.

Oh we may need to add those to these, Darcy!

If you could snap your fingers and become an expert in something, what would it be?

If I could become an expert at anything with a snap of my fingers, I would become a an expert at cooking. I love cooking, but I'm no Gordon Ramsey.

Tell us more about yourself, Edgar!

So far, what's your proudest accomplishment in 2019?

Related to this career, it would be having started on this career path and registering for the UNT MPA program to start this fall. Unrelated to this career, it would be that I finished writing my first novel and am working on trying to get it published.

What else have you done, Misty?
