My secret pleasure is … to soak in my bathtub.

My first job was … a flower seller.

My most annoying habit is … being stubborn.

A clear childhood memory is … the night movie Friday’ at my grandparents’ house.

What makes me really nervous is … the authority.

The best advice my grandparents gave me was … do what you like in life.

If I wasn’t an industrial designer, I’d be … an actress.

I’m most thankful for … having very great friends.

My favorite meal is … tomato spaghetti.

I know it’s good for me, but I hate … jogging.

A book I love is … 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

A song that resonates is … Dancing in the Dark.

My ‘happy place’ is … in the arms of my love.

My most embarrassing memory is … when I lost the test paper of my students.

My hidden skill is … that I have strength in my arms.

If I was a dog, I’d be … Laïka―the Soviet space dog who became one of the first animals in space!

It’s a bit corny but I love … receiving gifts.

I’m most at peace when … I feel loved.

Country I’d love to visit … Brazil.

Favourite quote … “after the rain comes the sun.”
