First Mate of the Month: Suheyla

How does it feel to be the First Mate of the month?

I've never been on a boat before, so I don't know if it'd be exciting or not.


How long have you been coming to MOI?

About two years.


What's your favorite thing about MOI?

Probably something silly, like the "c-horses." [Captain's Note: Our "seahorse" ranch is full of "c-horses," pictured below.]



What's your favorite desert?

I can't decide between ice cream and cake, so I'll say ice cream cake.


What's your favorite season?

I like winter, because it's the most beautiful. Second is summer, because there's so much happening and there's no school, but I don't like summer because all the roads are closed because of construction.


What's your favorite mode of transportation?

Probably just using my bike (even though I've only ridden it once).


What's your favorite snack?

My top two are the nacho cheese Doritos, which I like most, and then pizza Pringles.


If you were an ocean creature, real or created, what would you be? Why?

A single water particle because I wouldn't have to worry about the food I eat, or getting eaten, or even survival.


What's your favorite book?

The Lost Children by Carolyn Cohagen. I has about 500 pages, maybe more.


When you're not diving deep with us at MOI, what do you do?

I play games.


If you were a superhero, what would your power be?

Telekinesis, because you could do anything with your mind. It's all the powers in one.


If your life were a book, what would its title be?

Do Nothing.


What's your favorite writing prompt?

The Story Machine, which helps you make a story starter from a list based on your birthday month and date, then you write the story.
