Who is your hero?

Frida Kahlo is my hero, because she is sassy, activist, strong, has a bold fashion sense that I could never hope to imitate, and her paintings have meanings.

Purple

It seems to be oranges right now. I like to eat them in class.

If you had 24/ hr to live, how would you spend it?

I would spend the day with my family.

What is the craziest thing you have done?

When I was little my grandfather owned a plot of land in Mexico, near a river basin. Me and my sister decided to go exploring, and ended up at the river. I just so happened to have a rope in my backpack full of things. We decided to swing in the river not knowing it was contaminated. When it was time for us to go home we found flowers to give to our mother and grandmother to sweeten them up. (We still got in trouble though.)

Who is your hero?

My mother is my hero because I’ve never seen someone do so much with  so little. She is so smart and efficient. She really knows how to make a dollar stretch.

What is your favorite color?

I think it's blue. Or burgundy.

What is your favorite food?

Mangos, or just fruits.

If you had 24 hours to live, how would you spend it?

I would go on a mini vacation with my family and friends.

What is the craziest thing you have done?

When I was in Haiti and my mom was in America, she sent me a bike, without training wheels! I was young and I didn’t know how to ride a bike. None of my cousins knew how to ride a bike. My younger cousin and I would push each other around on the bike until we finally learned. That bike took us on a lot of adventures. One time the bike had a flat tire, and we didn’t have a personal pump. We had to go to the store and pump the tire, but it cost a dollar. We didn’t have a dollar, so we decided to rent the bike, with the flat tire. We received the money first and let them ride the bike. Afterwards, we went to the store and pumped the tire, and off we went on our adventures. When I moved to America, my cousin and I won bikes through a program from school. It was like history repeated itself all over again.
