Share with us the title of the last book read.

Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success by Steve Harvey.

What's your idea of the perfect date?

The perfect date is just being in an atmosphere filled with fun and laughter even if it is at Tastee.

Which five women (living or dead) would you invite to dinner and why?

My mother, my two sisters, Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. Michelle and Oprah are two women I admire greatly and can learn a whole lot from. I would love my family to be a part of such an empowering moment with these two empowering women so we can learn and grow together.

Which five words best describe you?

Hard-working, determined, down-to-earth, positive and high-energy.

What was your immediate reaction to winning Rookie of the Year?

It was very emotional as I was watching the results on the final day. It was a nail-biting experience. I was elated as many didn't believe that I could have done it in four months.

Finally, what advice would you give a younger Wendy?

My advice to a younger Wendy would be to start saving and investing from my very first paycheque. Pay myself first.
