ANSWERS TO SUNNY’S QUESTIONS
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CONCERT?
A: My first concert ever was Tatiana. In case you don’t know her (and most likely you don’t) she is a mexican singer; she sings children’s songs. I was about ten years old and I went with my mom, my sister who was only six and my best friends and their moms. For her final song my friends, my sister and I got the chance to go on stage and dance around with her! Definitely one of my favorite childhood memories.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC FROM A SONG THAT MOVED YOU?
A: Back when I was living in the States without my parents and siblings, I used to feel really lonely. And one afternoon I heard a song that became my personal anthem. It’s Fight Song by Rachel Platten. My favorite lyrics of the song:
And it’s been two years, I miss my home
But there’s a fire burning inside my bones
Still believe (…)
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song(…)
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO IS FIRST TIME BLOGGER?
A: Well, I’m a new blogger myself, but the best advice that someone has given me about blogging is: forget about the numbers. Focus on being yourself, and write about whatever that makes you happy. Write from the heart and you’ll find people with the same passions and interests as you!
DESCRIBE IN ONE WORD YOUR PERSONALITY
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?
A: It’s so hard to pick just one! I am still pretty obsessed with Aladdin, but I think that my all time favorite would have to be The Breakfast Club. I think this movie is timeless; anyone, anywhere can relate to it. And I have to admit, I cried my eyes out the first time I watched it, and still feel like crying everytime I watch it again.
WHILE OUT ENJOYING A DAY OF LEISURE WHAT WOULD YOU PURCHASE, A BOOK TO READ OR NEW CD?
A: A book, without hesitation. I love collecting CD’s of my favorite artists, but I can’t resist the temptation of buying a new book even if I have a pile at home, waiting for me to read them.
FAVORITE PLACE TO WRITE
A: At the desk next to the picture window at my house, especially when it’s raining.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A GOOD CRY?
A: About two months ago because I was really stressed out about school. I felt like I was drowning because of my anxiety. I’m feeling a lot better now.
WHAT BLOG POST ARE YOU MORE PROUD OF? & POST THE LINK
A: There are two blog posts that I’m really proud because of different reasons:
Prisoner Of My Mind. It took a lot to write about my story, and be completely honest about it. I hope that it helps others share their own stories and overcome them.
Concentration Camps for Kids: Are We Repeating History? Funny enough, is in posts like this one where I don’t really get many comments or likes, but I am proud because I feel like it’s important to talk about this kind of stuff. I also had to do a lot of research over the subject, so I’m proud of that too.
BEST PIECE OF CLOTHING TO WEAR?
A: Anything comfortable and that really represent who I am. I don’t really follow fashion trends, I wear what I like.
LAST MOVIE YOU SEEN
A: Murder Mystery on Netflix. Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston have been two of my favorite actors since I was a little girl, so seeing them together in a movie once again was a dream. I also loved watching Luis Gerardo Mendez, a mexican actor who’s little by little killing it in Hollywood, acting in this movie. I love seeing people making their dreams come true!
