Getting to Know ...

  1. Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world (fictional, real, or imaginary)? San Francisco in the city. I went there this past summer for a few days and it was the place I’ve ever been.
  2. If you could be one age forever what would it be? I would want to be 25 because then I would have experience and still be young and be able to do what I wanted. 
  3. If you could have been a child prodigy what would you have wanted to be skilled at? Gymnastics, the gymnasts in the Olympics are so inspiring and fun to watch.
  4. If you were reincarnated as an animal what would it be? A dog because they are always so happy and playful.
  5. What would you name your autobiography? Du What You Love: The Story of Esther Du
  6. What do you miss most about being a kid? Being able to just play sports with friends and not care about much of anything else.
  7. What was your favorite activity in gym class? Anytime I got to compete against classmates in a team sport.
  8. Would you rather be really really big or really really small? Probably really really big.
  9. What did you want to be when you were young? And now? I wanted to be an athlete when I was young but now I want to be an entrepreneur in the technology industry.
  10. What song would you sing at karaoke night? You Belong With Me or any other Taylor Swift song
  11. Where would you not mind waiting? At Disneyland. It’s the happiest place on Earth!

  18. If you could paint a picture of any scenery you’ve seen before, what would you paint? The beach or ocean view. I love everything about being near the water.
  19. If you had to work on only one project for the next year, what would it be? Probably trying to start a company and learning as much as I can from the experiences.
  20. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? Priscilla. I think it’s very classy.
  21. What story does your family always tell about you? The time when I was around two years old and I had to get stitches on my face. I was really excited about going out to eat and I was running while wearing shoes that were too big for me and so I tripped and landed face first against a corner ledge. 
  22. Where’s Waldo? In the picture book.
