If your future self could have a conversation with your current self, what do you think you would talk about?
“I’m truly unsure – to be honest, I would be quite fearful to talk to my future self as I really wouldn’t want to influence my path of life ahead. If I was forced to talk to the future me though I think the only question I would ask is if I am happy.”
Do you think women are treated with less respect than men?
“While I feel that respect is largely a give and take situation, I have experienced certain people who feel my age and gender make me less reputable or credible than my male counterparts. I don’t take it personally, these are very few situations as compared the majority of people I come across. In general, I feel women still have many more miles to travel before we are regarded in the same ‘league’ as men but perhaps these are very culturally influenced obstacles we as a generation have to learn to overcome. Personally I feel very lucky to have grown up surrounded by strong-willed men and women who have shaped the level of respect I feel I deserve in life.“
What meal would you pick for your last meal on earth?
I am such a lover of all sorts of different foods that this question is so hard for me to answer! Could I say a pizza burger with pasta, salad, fries, ice-cream and cookies on the side? Does that count?
Thank you for the feature!
