What is your superpower?
I will say adaptation. To every kind of people or situation, I think. I like people, and I like being curious and to discover new things. I've been traveling a lot and I would say that a lot of amazing things happened to me and I think I have to do something about it, in a way.
What would you change in your country if you were able to?
If I want to change something in Paris? I don't think I want to change anything in Paris, just maybe my own perception of Paris. I think it's the only thing you can do anyway, so maybe find my own way in a city going so fast.
What are you proud of?
I'm proud of being well surrounded. I have a lot of friends and a close family. I feel lucky.
What is your spirit vegetable?
It's a weird question. I would say carrots. I eat a lot of carrots.
What do you expect from a friend?
I expect love and sharing. And I expect to feel comfortable to be completely myself, to be accepted as I am.
How important are friends to you?
So important. So so important. I really know, I'm really aware of the fact that friends are a big influence on you. So I think like it's so important to have good people influencing you.
Do you have enough time for them?
Yes, I take time. I take time for them a lot. I'm always there. I'm not working so much at the moment so I'm spending a lot of time with my friends right now.
Is it easy to become friends in your country?
I would say yes. In my own experience, it has always been really easy. I meet new friends quite often. Even the guy you are going to, his place in Lyon, it's so recent. I don't think that you need to be friends for ten years to be friends. If you are just curious to discover, and also when others are curious to discover you.
