Q: Can you elaborate on seeing what Frank Sinatra’s inspiration was?

Q: Where would you go if you could time travel and what is the meaning behind that?

Q: Is there a specific time period you are referring to or just many different moments throughout time?

A: I will miss it but I’m definitely glad she was here for my freshman year so I didn’t feel so lost.

Q: What are you expectations and ideas on how to handle the rest of high school, especially when being passed on information from an older sibling?

Q: What are you favorite things to do in your free time and what makes those things your favorite?

A: I play a lot of musical instruments in my free time, but I also love to read and watch movies. They’re my favorite thing to do because they’re relaxing for me and I don’t have to stress over them.
