Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Find your voice, spread your wings and fly free...

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. It's a bogus answer because he's really good at heart, but I'm going to pick Snape from the Harry Potter series. But I think it suits me because I am that glass half-full kind of a girl and I can't help but believe that every villain has a little bit of Snape in them.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I'm a glass half-full optimist who is constantly working on making herself a better person.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. I admire the quiet givers, the small town folks who change and save the lives of their friends and neighbors without anyone really knowing what they do and how much it means. They have good hearts and I admire them more than anyone.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jonah from Lois Lowry's THE GIVER--When I read that book in high school I realized that there was someone else out there that had questions like me. I'll always love Jonah and Lois for giving me that.
