- Describe your personality in five words.
Dedicated, peaceful, scatterbrained, friendly, curious.
- Do you have an oddly specific talent? Tell us about it!
I do vinyasa-style yoga. I can go straight from crow pose into tripod headstand, pike, back to headstand, straight back to crow, shoot back to low plank, and then chaturanga. I can also pull off fallen angel pose [an advanced pose that requires a high level of strength, balance and flexibility].
- What’s your favorite international cuisine? Favorite dish?
I love Indian food. My favorite dish is malai kofta [fried veggie balls in a creamy curry sauce] over saffron rice, but I like anything that is both saucy and spicy.
