What is your favorite city?
My favorite city I think is Florence because I love its art atmosphere and art is always my favorite thing to see. Also, I love Italy and Florence is my favorite city in Italy.

What is your dreamjob?
Architect. Because I really, really, really love architecture and actually, I have another degree for advertisement; in the past I really wanted to go for a job in creating fantastic things for the future and I think for learning architecture and being an architect I can combine creation with earning money. That’s why I chose this job, I choose architecture and I want to be an architect. Also because my father is an architectural engineer so I think it is the best option I can have.

Which is your favorite cocktail?
Mojito. I love mint inside the mojito and just the mixture of fresh mint with a little sugar inside... and I think it’s not that strong, for me.

Do you know where the mojito is from?
Cuba.

Which is your favorite dish?
I don’t know, I’m not that into eating dishes. If I could only eat one dish for the rest of my life I would choose a sandwich. A salmon sandwich, I can eat it all my life because it’s fast and convenient.

What would you rather fight, one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses?
Fight with one big duck or a hundred horses? Fight? I would choose the small ones because I can beat them down and for the big duck it’s horrible, come on. A hundred I can take time to beat them down but for a big duck I can’t beat it down. Even tho it’s just one big duck I still think I’m not able to, I don’t have the capability to beat it. So even tho it’s one hundred horses it would take me some time but still I can win, win the fight.
