If you could be any superhero, who would it be and what powers would you have?
Kim Possible. The power to save the world! Not to mention she is fiercely loyal to her friends :)
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
The first thing I wanted to be when I was growing up was an acrobat. As I got a little bit older, I decided that I wanted to be an Entomologist (scientist who studies insects). I was OBSESSED with bugs. I even had my own microscope set at age 5 and I was dissecting things, collecting samples and totally fascinated by bugs. We had a family friend who was an Entomologist in Western Australia, and I vividly remember that he took me into his work one day- I thought the rows and rows of bugs and butterflies were unreal.
What should every kid know?
Every kid should know that anything is possible. Just because the world works a certain way, doesn't mean that is the way it HAS to be. You can make anything happen and sometimes, you are even able to change the world for the better by going against what you think is the 'normal' way to do something.
Words to live by?
Vision without action is daydreaming.
