Kayleigh is a big fan of coffee, and of cheese. While she's in D.C., she hopes to visit the Federal Reserve System's headquarters so she can get a better sense of how money is made. In accordance with her interest in business, Kayleigh would like to meet Donald Trump, and it’s no surprise that math and science are two of her favorite subjects.
