Do you like the changes?/Are you open to change? Why?

Absolutely yes. I can say that I am a thrill seeker. I always attempt to do things that I have never experienced before, you know, travelling to a new place alone or participating in a competition without any understanding of it. Through these experiences, I have a better insight into my surroundings and put on my thinking cap as well.

What do you plan to change next year?

Actually, I have not come up with any plan for the next year yet. I think I will learn another language like French. Ya know, I have already excelled in English and I am not at all a creature of habit, so I will learn French and broaden my understanding about French culture.

Are there any changes to your work?

Of course, I change my job frequently and I am a job hopper. Whenever I feel that my job is tedious, I will change to another one. Ya know, as a thrill seeker, I do not want to remain my whole life on an endless treadmill.

Have you changed a lot since your childhood?

Yes, I think that I change completely. From a shy, introverted child who was scared of everything, after experiencing, learning and growing a lot, now, I can confidently claim that I am a social butterfly. Knowing my own strength and weaknesses, I can be more confident and amiable.
