What Superhero would you like to be and why?
I would like to be Wonder Woman. She is physically strong as well as mentally strong.

What according to you is a true friend?
A true friend is someone who is someone who loves and cares about you no matter what. A true friend is also someone who always cheers you on.

How do you handle criticism?
As a leader in my school and on my sport teams I have had to learn how to take positive and negative criticism. I keep pushing whether it is something I like or not.

When was the last time you tried something new?
A few days ago I tried Sushi for the first time. I liked how everything tasted, but the textures were a little different than what I was used to.

Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
Crying is a sign of strength because you are showing how vulnerable you can be around others. I think it takes a lot of strength and courage to show emotions other than happiness and anger.
