Carmen Rodrigues
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Improbable? Possibly. But impossible? Now that's a whole other story.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My mama. I mean, she gave birth to me, right. Good job, woman. Good job.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Chocolate. Oh, yes.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Well, dear reader, life is full of fears. Right now, my NYC fear is getting hit by a bus because if you're going to go in NYC, that's pretty much how you go and that M4 always looks wobbly when it approaches the curb. But mostly, I'm afraid of fear taking over. You know? Bad stuff's going to happen but the worst thing you can do is spend your precious time worrying about it before it does (if it ever does).

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Honesty, empathy, and altruism.
