Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: When I grow up I want to be an actress. I want to be an actress and singer because I have always loved doing and watching plays, watching movies, and listening to music (My favorite type of plays are musicals)

Q: What do you love most about STEM?
A: To me, I think that the concept of STEM is amazing because things like Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math are the key to building things. I could build a robotic animal, learning about how the animal works from life science, using tech to code the robot. I would use engineering to build the robot and Math to calculate the movement and speed of the robot. My favorite part of STEM is how creative you can be.

Q: What is your favorite thing about StemChef?
A: The reason I love StemChef is that I get to work together with my friends to solve problems. My friends love StemChef too and we can’t wait for StemChef to open again so we can try more escape rooms!

Q: How many StemChef Escape Rooms have you completed?
A: One day I was at Blackhawk Plaza with my friends and I saw StemChef and I saw the flyer and I was so excited because Baking and Escape rooms are my favorite things to do. A couple of days later I came with a couple of my friends and it was amazing! It was unlike any escape room I had done before, WE MADE CHOCOLATE MOOSE! On my Birthday I had my birthday party there. I have never missed an escape room since then.

Q: If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
A: If I had 3 wishes my first wish would be for world peace because there are so many conflicts that need to be resolved. My second wish would be to become a TV actress. My third and last wish would be to travel around the world with my best friend.

Q: What was your first encounter with STEM?
A: I was with my friends at Blackhawk Plaza and I saw StemChef. I got one of the flyers and after I read it I had never been so excited in my life.

Q: If you could trade places with anyone for a day, who would it be?
A: If I could trade places with anyone It would be Selena Gomez or Zendaya because they are both actresses and singers which is what I want to be when I grow up.

Q: What is something you really want to learn? (Could be a skill, a hobby, knowledge, anything!)
A: I really want to learn how to sing because I have always loved to sing but haven’t always been good at it.

Q: What is something that made you laugh today?
A: My brother makes funny videos that make me laugh (He pretended to be an old man in a wheel chair). Another thing that made me laugh was when I told my dad that you could text from the computer he didn't know that. Giving advice to my parents in general is funny.

Q: What worries you the most? On the flip side, what excites you the most?
A: Something that worries me most is failing at something. For me, I get really stressed if I think I’m going to fail at something or if I do. Two things that excite me are escape rooms and traveling because I love to go to different places around the world.

Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
A: If I could have any superpower I would want to know everything. If I knew everything I wouldn't have to question things.

Q: What job would you never want to have and why?
A: I would never want an office job because office jobs seem boring to me because you are just typing on the computer of writing things done most times. I would want to have a job that is fun and exciting.
