If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive) who it would be, and why?

Fun fact about you? Share something that nobody would guess about you.

“I have a few, the first one is that I was able to do the splits at 33 years old. YAY flexibility!! The second is that throughout my childhood my dad would not let me ride my bicycle outside on the road (just parks or my house). For the first time ever I bought myself a bicycle last December and started riding through neighborhoods. It was scary at first, but I love it!”

Question from the previous MEM/WEW/TET: “If you could be anyone from history who would you be and why? It can be the villain too!”

“I would be Virginia Woolf, she is an English writer from the 20th century. I would like to be her because she is a pioneer and a female author. Back then women didn’t have a lot of freedom or rights and the fact that she wrote many novels and books is an achievement. My favorite book by her is To the Lighthouse.”

What question do you have for the next MEM/WEW/TET:

“What 3 wishes you would request the genie in a bottle?”
