Karastin Hughes is a Multicultural Health Communications Associate at ICF Next.
Who do you look up to most, and why?
My mother is one of the strongest people I know. She has always encouraged me that I will be successful in everything that I do.
If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? What would you do there?
I would love to travel to Bali. As I’m all about relaxation while on vacation, I would get a private villa and have breakfast in the pool. Exploring Bali’s beaches, museums, and ancient architecture would also be on the itinerary.
What's your favorite book and why?
Currently, my favorite book is the Bible. Every time I open it I gain a greater understanding of myself and my relationship with God.
What does "paying it forward" mean to you?
Paying it forward means giving back to those around you in whatever way you can. It may look different depending on the person, but whatever it is should positively impact that person’s life.
