There are many fish in the sea, do you consider yourself one of them?
I’m not just any fish — I’m the best catch.
What are your thoughts on peace?
I don’t think I’ll be able to comprehend it until I really, truly, wholeheartedly, super experience it myself. Which I would say that I haven’t yet. Parang pag-ibig lang ‘yan.
How much are you willing to pay for peace?
How do you even put a price on that… Well assuming you could — I’d probably get people who wished for world peace on their birthdays to help me out, because even if I sold my soul (which I probably wouldn’t be willing to do) that is so not going to be enough to pay for instant peace.
If you had to change something in Ecosoc, what would it be?
Firstly, I’d fix the tambayan cleanliness (or lack thereof)! It’s really bothersome (especially to my OC sensibilities) but more than that, I think we deserve better for ourselves. The other thing I’d kind of want to change would be the issues we’ve had with regards to identity, though I believe we’ve taken great steps to further reaffirm how we are and have been socially relevant.
Who is your most favorite execom and why?
Sobrang cool ni Derek Parreñas. No explanation needed. (WEH BOLA)
Make an Ecosoc pairing and defend.
You and Ecosoc — because it will love you a hundred times back.
(Seriously though, “medj” clueless ako sa mga ganyang bagay. Hahahaha!)
Where, if you had the chance, would you go?
Boldly where no one has gone before — so outer space it is!
What time, if you had a time machine, would you go to?
Can I get reincarnated too? I think I was secretly born in the ’80s, so I’d definitely want to go there for the music, and of course to see the alternate universe Dea with a mullet.
Do you think you look like Chiara?
After around 49123408293 people telling me that, as well as a photo from our app party that mindblew me 5 minutes after seeing it — yup I think I’m pretty convinced.
What other name would you have given yourself?
Any name that’s as weird as I am and/or starts with a K/X/Z, like Xenia or Keira or something, for a) coolness factor and b) fun factor with baristas.
