Back in the day I was…
very introverted and happily spent hours reading a book while sitting on the branches of a cherry tree.

On my first birthday in the US…
I ended up in prison, but not as a suspect – I escorted someone to prison during a ride-along in a police car.

My first car was…
and still is a 2008 red Civic coupe (I did not need a car before I came to the US). It has red dragon car mats, red-and-black seat covers and red reflective stripes on the wheels.

One of my bucket list items is…
to adopt a mustang and go horseback riding every day.

My last meal…
would include homemade chocolate cheesecake and Tokaji Furmint wine.
