1. What is your greatest achievement? My internship where I interviewed civil rights activists. It was an honor and privilege to hear their stories and have it recorded so that everyone can enjoy it. That experience is right up there with being nominated for this award!
2. If you were to be stranded on a desert island what 3 items would you take with you and why? My Bible so I could be encouraged by the passages. I would also bring sunblock so I would not get sun burnt. I would also bring a picture of my family to give me strength to survive and also hope.
3. What is your favourite time of year? Fall because my birthday is in fall and most of my family members are born in November. So fall is the party season in my family. I also love the fall colors, the comfort food, and the cozy fall clothing that I can finally pull out of my closet and wear.
4. Dream job/career? To be an oral historian. I like to interview people and hear their stories. I believe that their are so many voices and stories that should be heard and documented for the next generation to know what occurred during certain time periods. That job would also require me to travel to different places which would be awesome to soak up a different culture or environment.
5. Favourite programme as a child? Sesame Street was my favorite program. I loved all of characters but had a soft spot for Grover because he was blue and very silly acting.
6. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go? Italy because it was one of the fashion capitals of the world. It also great art and food. I absolutely love Italian food!
7. Do you do any sports/ have any hobbies? One of my hobbies is being on polyvore. That is where I create my outfit posts at. It is great for bloggers especially newbies because you get to meet great people and be inspired by their work.
8. What is your ideal get away vacation? My ideal vacation would have to been at a beach or a tropical location. I just love being by the water and hearing the waves. I love how the beach makes you feel so relaxed and calm not in a rush.
9. Favourite fast-food restaurant/takeaway? This is hard because I do not eat out very often, so I guess it would have to be Chic fil a because of their waffle fries and lemonade.
10. What is the song you are listening to most at the moment? I am listening to No Gray by Jonathan Mcreynolds. The song is not only beautiful but honest about the struggles that Christians may experience at point in their life. Sometimes we want to be cool and try to fit in with the world but we want to be saved at the same time. There is now way you can do both.
11. Why did you get into blogging? I got into blogging because after being on Polyvore I found that I had a talent for making sets about clothing. So it really started has an hobby or to keep busy when I was not working. I also came to the realization that their were not too many modest bloggers out there who did not make dressing modest a chore for a young women to do. I believe that dressing modest can be beautiful and it does not have to be complicated or expensive.
