Kimberly Sabatini
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd love to meet Helen Keller. I'd just want to sit and listen to everything she had to say--soak it all up like a sponge.

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. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I'm convinced that it must be the word "I"--I really need to learn to be a better listener.

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.
