Alicia Dalton-Tingler - 1st Runner-Up

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
I wish Id learned healthier eating habits earlier in life. I ate exclusively for enjoyment until 2012. That year I learned I have Graves Disease, an autoimmune disease that, among other things, increases metabolism. After my diagnosis, everything changed. I learned about food choice and portion size, and Im grateful because the health benefits have been amazing.


What is the biggest change you want to make in your life?
I dont fear the future, Im excited about it! I cant wait to see what new technology, medical interventions, and movements shake our world.


What do you think is the best feeling in the world?
I love the stories that result from travel particularly from the mishaps. They make for the best stories years later. I love the tale of a 1998 vacation when we threw caution to the wind and booked an oceanfront hotel online cutting edge technology at the time. Once we arrived, we couldnt find our hotel. Thats because we were in Ocean City, Maryland. Our hotel room was in Ocean City, New Jersey.


What was the single, best realization you have ever had?
I love the gratitude that Ive gained. In my youth, I often took for granted the things that I now treasure: my faith, my health, my family, and unconditional love. Lifes experiences have taught me the value of these things that now reside at the top of my priority list.
