I was applying to law schools and working as a waitress at a Mexican restaurant in Atlanta called Rio Bravo. I still can’t stand the sight of an enchilada to this day!

5) Things you would do if you were a billionaire

i) open my own restaurant/store, a la Boogie’s Diner, with dining on one level and shopping on another (go couture crazy while enjoying a cocktail and waiting for your table!).

ii) buy a top of the line camera & some Goyard luggage and visit Canyon Ranch in AZ for a bit of pampering, Dubai, Milan, Prague, Bali (and lots of other fab destinations I have yet to see)

iii) purchase an apartment in NYC and a condo in Aspen.
