What is your superpower?
First thing that comes to mind: Barbell Specialist. Anything weightlifting, I have the ability to just push past my boundaries and not put the bar down, not give up and go heavier than I thought I could.
What accomplishment are you most proud of in your life?
To this day I still say my Opera Degree. It taught me more about discipline, work, and persistence then anything had up until that point and I still take lessons away from what I gained through that experience.
