What are some of your hobbies?

Some of my hobbies are listening to music, drawing and reading books.

What genre of music do you like?

I mostly like all genres of music, so I would listen to them all.

What is your favorite movie?

I don’t really have a favorite movie.

Who is your favorite actor/artist/celebrity? Why?

My favorite actor/artist/celebrity would be lady Gaga. I would always listen to her music when I was little and I just really like her as a person.

If you use social media, which is your most preferred?

One social media I prefer the most is YouTube. It’s not much like Instagram or Snapchat but I really like to just watch videos on my favorite YouTubers and just get to enjoy it!

Cake or ice cream?

I would say cake but it depends on the cake. If it isn’t what I like then I would go for the ice cream.

Would you like to live to 100? Why or why not?

I would like to live up to 100 just cause I would like to see how the world has changed over the few years and just to experience new things.

If you won 1 million dollars today, what would you do with it?

If I won 1 million dollars today I would most likely save it. I’m a person who likes to save my money and use it on things that are Necessary sometimes. But every now and then I could treat myself.

If you could choose a superpower, what would you choose?

If I could choose a superpower I would most likely choose more than one but one of them could be to stop time.

Who/What is your inspiration? Why?

I don’t really have inspiration.

If you could send a message to your 30 year old self, what would it be?

If I could send a message to my 30 year old self I would most definitely ask how are you now. You better not be a slacker and I hope you are great in your life right now.
