You’re from Brooklyn. Tell us about your city.
Brooklyn is a very diverse part of NYC with all sorts of cultures coming together, giving you a bunch of choices when it comes to food or drinks. It’s very laidback.
Brooklyn is full of amazing culture. What inspires you?
The diversity itself inspires me to go out and see what else the world has to offer. I mean, if there are more than 10 completely different cultures represented where I hang out, I can only dream of the cultures around the country and the world.
You like to play handball. Handball seems like a pretty intense sport. What inspired you to take part?
I guess seeing most of my friends and schoolmates play the game got me into it. I was 11 when I started playing.
Do you have any suggestions or tips for those who want to take a stab at trying the sport?
You have to be quick, agile and learn to have excellent hand eye coordination. Play with friends, play mainly for fun and do use strategy, unless you’re not serious.
