What inspires you?
I am constantly inspired by the natural world that surrounds me. To me, the mountains and oceans are a source of wonder.
What is your favorite subject in school, and why?
When I realized as a child that books are not merely sovereign entities and that instead they are painstakingly crafted by real people, literature became even more fascinating to me. We can create entire worlds in our minds and communicate stories through language to ignite the imaginations and evoke emotions in readers whom we may never meet. That’s incredible!
