1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
Iâ€™m not sure a day has gone by without me laughing, granted mostly itâ€™s from my own jokes. Something that always makes me laugh endlessly are my family trips. I may not be laughing in the moment, but they always make great stories; from car troubles to trips to the ER, we have experienced it all! A quote that I have always thought to be true is, â€œMy family puts the FUN in DYSFUNCTIONAL.â€
2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
Some say that I am very messy, and to that I would have to say yes, I am! I like my things â€œorganizedâ€, but itâ€™s not always the most conventional way. I like to say that the artist within me has more control than I thought, meaning that my room is abstract. Like an artist, everything is placed with intent. You want that one blue pen from a month ago? Give me three seconds!
3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
My parents are both physicians, with this comes many stories and advice at a young age. I also was blessed with the ability to exaggerate everything. When I was little, I believed that I should buckle up even in a parked car because you just never know. Many of these beliefs of mine have toned down, but I still never wear socks to bed.
4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
When I was little, my parents would call me Stella Luna Fruit Bat, like from the book Stellaluna by Janelle Cannon. This was because I was their little fruit bat. I have always loved fruit. They would even give me the pit of a mango to nibble on. So, I will always go for strawberry ice cream and whatâ€™s better than to have a light caramel drizzle on top.
5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
Iâ€™m told that I have authenticity. Itâ€™s something I strive for be because God calls us to serve Him by being one's true self. We all have somewhere where we can dance like nobodyâ€™s looking or belt out that one note thatâ€™s a little too high. For me, thatâ€™s when I am alone being creative. Whether it means chasing the sun in my car or listening to music while making some kind of art.
