What are the three (3) things that you do every day?
Homework, exercise and smile.
What do you value most: free time, recognition or money? Why?
I think I’d have to say recognition. For me, this choice came from a process of elimination; my job is what I love to do at the moment and I’d rather be working than have free time and I wouldn’t consider money something I value most.
What are the three (3) things that your friends don’t know about you?
My best friends know almost everything about me! I couldn’t tell you before I tell them!
Who do you consider your hero and why?
Amal Clooney is one of my heroes. I greatly admire her grace, bravery and humanity.
Would you consider yourself an introvert, extrovert or ambivert?
Do you have physical features that you try to cloak or hide? How come?
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have any insecurities, but as I get older I’m starting to learn how important it is to love yourself just the way you are and to work hard to become the best version of yourself you can possibly be.
Before this, what was your very first job?
Make It Pop is my very first job!
Do you think love is chemical, intellectual, spiritual or completely indefinable?
All of the above!
Do you believe that everyone deserves redemption and forgiveness?
