What Superhero would you like to be and why?
Staying true to my Greek heritage, I would have to say Anna. I am a spitting image of my great, great grandmother, Anna, who had the same deep olive toned Greek skin as I have.

What according to you is a true friend?
Everyone likes to joke about how "terrible" Mondays are, but I feel they are so unappreciated. As a fresh start to a new week, so many wonderful things happen on any given Monday. Statistics show that thousands of hugs will be given, "I love yous" will be said, and ice cream cones will be sold on a single Monday. How could ONE day of the week that holds all those wonderful things be so bad?

How do you handle criticism?
My favorite childhood movie was The Wizard of Oz - by far! I'm not sure if it was the fact that I looked like Dorothy or skipped along the yellow brick road with them in my living room, but either way I couldn't watch it enough.

When was the last time you tried something new?
My favorite sport is basketball due to the fast pace of the game. Only being 5"5' (just a little peanut), I am amazed by the height of some of the players!
