What is your superpower?
I can make myself work like a crazy person, straight for many hours. Maybe for some people it is a superpower, I believe.
What would you change in your country if you were able to?
If I could, the attitude of people. That probably should be changed because it's too much in the past and they need to look forward more towards the future and be more open to new experiences and new knowledge. So I think that would be one big step - one step but it will be big enough for next changes to take place.
What are you proud of?
I'm proud of my parents because they gave me so much knowledge which I'm able to use now. I'm able to bring myself to the places where, through their knowledge, I am able to achieve so many things by myself.
What is your spirit vegetable?
That's a good question, I never saw it coming. That's an orange. You know sometimes, you get really sweet, nice oranges, and sometimes they're bitter as hell. Well that's also me, but mostly I'm kind of the sweet orange. I'm trying to be positive towards other people.
How important are friends to you?
Oh highly important. I cannot say I'm a very extroverted person, I am more of an introvert. But even though I have less amount of friends, I have those which are literally soulmates to me, and I'm pretty sure they would never give me out in any situation so I always can count on them.
Is it easy to become friends in your country?
It's easy to become friends with them yeah, but it's hard to find them, I would say.
