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 any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. A fabulous politican with a string of accomplishments in the fields of human rights, the rights of children, cross-cultural understanding, and education with a stack of best-selling books to my credit!
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 greatest flaw?
A. A quick temper.
