What do you love most about yourself?
I love that I’m a self-starter. I don’t wait to do something until someone tells me to do it.
What would you most like to change about yourself?
If it were possible to go back in time and change or undo some things that I did when I was younger, I would. I’m pretty happy with myself right now.
Favorite Fictional Character & why:
Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables. She isn’t afraid of speaking her mind and she doesn’t seem to care what people think.
Name one possession that you absolutely love: I love my Kindle. It allows me to take all my favorite books with me wherever I go.
If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be and why? I would love to meet Anne Frank. I would want to ask her how she was able to maintain such an optimistic attitude through such a horrendous situation.
