In your group of friends, what role do you play?
The organiser. I have almost daily contact with my group of junior high school friends and I’m often the one who makes sure we all get together when I’m back home in Iran.
What skill would you like to master?
To perfectly parry a blow in fencing. I have just started to learn and there are beginners of all ages in my fencing class, which means it is never too late to learn.
What is one of your personal “rules” that you never break?
I would never use money that is not mine for personal gain, even if it is just a penny found on the ground.
Are there any weird food combinations that you enjoy?
I like to salt some fruits and vegetables like orange and rhubarb. It may sound odd, but you might be pleasantly surprised if you try it!
