My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Take risks, overextend and always dress the part.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Northern coast of Sri Lanka
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Trudi Montag in Ursula Hegi's Stones From The River
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. Pundits interpreting cultures that they have never lived in for the world without allowing local voices to speak for their own. I think this peeve also extends to internal sub-cultures (socio-economic, race, immigrant etc.) - and maybe I need to develop a kinder, gentler outlook, but it does drive me bonkers.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I'm comfortable in any setting and can make a friend even where everybody is in the opposite camp!
