Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?

When I was a young girl Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorites as was Nancy Drew. They both exhibited the character traits that appealed to me most, intellectual curiosity, compassion, open-heartedness, sensitivity, awkwardness at times. I spent hours reading and rereading those books. They were my friends during many difficult times in my childhood when I felt as if I didn’t have any friends after a rough day of bullying and being made fun of and feeling at risk of getting beat up.

If I had the chance to spend time with Anne of Green Gables, I wouldn’t want to bring the mood down by complaining, instead I would want to know more about her. Spending time with Nancy Drew, I definitely would have spent my time asking her how she navigated high school years and kept her sense of self and self confidence.

The other character that I would love to spend time with which will never change is Lizzie Bennet. Everything about her I can relate to and I can imagine us spending hours reading together, walking together and talking about everything under the sun.
