If you could meet a historical figure, who would it be? I would want to meet Eve (as in Adam and Eve from the book of Genesis) to ask her what it was like to be the only woman on Earth, walking alone with her husband and her creator.

What is the best lesson learned from a teacher? I have learned that hard work and dedication donít necessarily pay off overnight. Everything takes time.
