When I posted the “Q&A” last week I didn’t expect to get more than 10-15 questions, tops! But over the past week I’ve received more than 70, so please bear with me. I’ll work my way through most one of them, (with the exception of the ones that were clearly not serious) just give me some time 😉
The amount of questions some of you managed to compile into one single comment impresses me, by the way.
I’ll split my responses into a couple separate posts. Read part 1 HERE.
Well, let’s get to part 2!
Q: What’s something that amazes you?
A: People. Nothing amazes me like people do. That’s probably why I like filmmaking, documentaries and journalism. It allows me to get to know people and tell their stories.
Q: How high are you?
A: Not very high. Or do you mean how tall I am? According to my US driver’s license I’m 1.72m (5’8″ inches)
Q: What does ur diet look like?
A: I don’t really have a specific diet anymore. I eat everything. But I don’t drink soda/pop, juice or alcohol. I was vegan for a week though. Read about it HERE
Q: Can you tell us more about your future plans? What happens after college?!
A: Good question, Karen! I honestly don’t know. I’m probably going to apply to different graduate film programs in the US: University of Texas, Tisch NUY School fo the Arts and a couple on the west coast. It’s expensive, and less than 4% of the applicants get in to some programs, but I’ll give it a shot. If I don’t get in I may want to start working in the US while also making films until I can make some money on that. We’ll see where God leads me.
Q: Favorite food?
A: Pizza. No doubt.
Q: Do you wear glasses?
A: Yes, when I’m not sleeping or wearing contacts.
Q: What do you think about more than anything else?
A: My faith.
Q: What’s one thing you’d rather pay someone to do than do yourself? Why?
A: Cooking. I’m just not good at it, and the food I make rarely tastes good. Read more about my kitchen skills HERE haha.
Q: What’s your reaction towards people who are outspoken about their beliefs? What conditions cause you to dislike or, conversely, enjoy talking with them?
A: I love it. I wish everyone were confident enough to express their true beliefs — without judging or harassing other people with different sets of beliefs and opinions. I dislike talking with them if they’re not interested in hearing another persons’ view, or if they fail to see that a story often has two sides. Even if you disagree with someone, you can still listen to what they have to say.
Q: How and where do you prefer to study?
A: I prefer to get it over with as quickly as possible. Preferably before supper. I don’t really enjoy homework, so the only way to make it go away is to do it, and the best place to do it is in the library or in the yearbook office at Augustana.

Q: What position do you sleep in?
A: Like a body in a casket, or on the side. Never on the stomach, ever.
Q: What’s your all-time favourite town or city? Why?
A: That’s a tough one. Probably New York City or Austin, TX. But please take into consideration that I haven’t been to Los Angeles yet.
Pheew, I still have a ton of questions left, but this was a start. Stay tuned for the rest.
