Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Take risks, overextend and always dress the part.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Trudi Montag in Ursula Hegi's Stones From The River

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Barack Obama

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Having the capacity to love those who should be, and being able to be as deserving of their love. Finding opportunities to use every single one of your talents no matter how impossible the goal or cause.

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.
