Q: What’s your dream job and why?

A: Working at NASA and becoming a scientist there studying black holes. I would like to help out people with the fear of space to let them know that not everything up there is as scary as it looks.

Q: What did you want to be when you were a little kid?

A: I wanted to be a singer when I was little, but that definitely changed over time.

A: Probably Hey Arnold!, because the characters have a lot of depth to them, and the show had a lot of good humor in it, too.

Q: What was your favorite early 2000’s show?

A: The Backyardigans, because that was my favorite show when I was younger. I loved it because the names were crazy, especially Uniqua. I also loved the little adventures they would go on.

Q: Describe yourself in three words.

A: Passionate, crazy and a dreamer. Ever since I was little, I always had dreams, and over time my passions have grown, especially for space, writing and just about anything else I can get my hands on.

Q: What’s your favorite animal and why?

A: Kiwis, because they’re little prehistoric birds that have short little legs, and they growl. They’re very interesting to watch.

Q: What is your favorite place that you’ve traveled to and why?

A: I’ve traveled here in the United States, and my favorite place is New Orleans, because it’s very pretty and has a rich history as well. I wanted to go to the French Quarter because that’s where everything is at and Mardi Gras is a very special time, too. Everybody’s happy, and it’s incredible.
