On a scale of 1 to 10, how cool are you?

I was very quiet in my younger years and then became a bit of a rebel and life of the party. I talked to everyone no matter who they were and I went to every party I was invited to.

What inspires you about the Super Power Agency?

Superpower Agency’s goal of getting students to enjoy writing and to tell their own stories and share their ideas is inspiring. Providing opportunities for students to be creative, to write and to learn is the greatest thing we can do to ensure that the next generation has the tools they need to succeed in school and in life.

Are you a spring, summer, autumn or winter person?

I am much more of an autumn person. I love the colors that come out, the transition from summer to fall and the smell of the air.

A penguin walks through the door right now, wearing a sombrero. why is he here and what does he say?

The penguin is here for revenge. He will not say who he is avenging, but from the look in his eyes and the tilt of his sombrero he means business. His adversary will not leave the fight unscathed or alive. The penguin waddles up to the bar and asks for a frozen burrito (Don’t heat it up) and a shot of tequila for courage.
