Where do you want to see yourself in five years?  As a returned missionary studying at BYU who is well on her way to becoming a published author. 
What are your favorite hobbies?  Reading, writing, playing the organ, watching baseball, and eating twix. 
If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them?  I would talk to Leonardo da Vinci and ask him whether intelligence is attained through experience or is a quality that you're naturally born with.
