How does it feel to be the First Mate of the month?
How long have you been coming to MOI?
I'm gonna say—this is my fourth year, so four years.
What's your favorite thing about MOI?
The staff here, because they're really helpful and very nice and fun.
What's your favorite snack you can get at MOI?
Cheese sticks and goldfish, but the normal goldfish, the cheese ones. (Not the pretzel ones.)
If you were an ocean creature, real or created, what would you be? Why?
A mermaid, because they look better than any other creature. But dolphins are also beautiful, so that's my second choice.
What's your favorite book?
There's so many, geez. The Babysitter's Club, but it's too hard to pick just one—just the whole series.
When you're not diving deep with us at MOI, what do you do?
I'm in 4th grade, and I also mostly read books outside of school.
If you were a superhero, what would your power be?
I'd want it to be helping people and teaching them (I want to be a teacher) but also a fashion one, where I can just…I can point and then people will be fashionable.
If your life were a book, what would its title be?
Selama's Adventures at MOI
What's your favorite writing prompt?
I made one up once where I wrote about how I would like to be treated by someone who wasn't so nice.
