Q. What inspires you?
Adventure and exploring my space inspires me. My experience of adventure includes slaying dragons, fighting monsters. I also saved someone from being bitten by a dog.
Q. How do you care for yourself, others and the environment?
I keep my body clean. I try to drink two liters of water a day. And I tell others how to protect themselves. I care a lot about trees and plants. Trees are really important, if there were no trees there wouldn’t be the air that we now breathe.
Q. Who is your role model?
Nelson Mandela and my big brother. Nelson Mandela was a good man, he freed us. My brother is also good, he’s always thinking about things and singing. I’d like to sing like him.
Q. How does yoga make you feel?
It makes me feel so relaxed, like I’m flying. It’s quiet, and I can relax my body just the way I want.
Q. What is your favorite yoga pose?
My favorite is lotus pose in meditation, and being quiet.
Q. If you were an animal what animal would you be?
I’d be a bird. Because I always dream of flying up in the sky, seeing the sun clearing, and the quiet. All you would hear are the birds.
