Q: Do you live near where you were born? Have you traveled much?
A: I generally live far away from the Twin Cities where I was born – the furthest away was New Zealand. Most recently, over the summer I lived in northern Minnesota, which was closer to Canada than really anything else. I do travel quite a lot. The whole family picked up and moved to New Zealand for six months when I was a sophomore in high school. At the time High School Musical was very popular and I spent a lot of time explaining that that wasn’t really an accurate representation of American high school or America in general. I also decided I didn’t like wearing a uniform, even if it was a kilt. But they do have golden kiwis, which are better than regular kiwis and one day I’ll go back, if only to eat golden kiwis again.
