1. I’m a lover of all hats!
2. I attended a British Catholic school for part of my [education].
3. I’m a huge fan of the Liverpool Football Club! I [once] had the privilege of going to Anfield [stadium]. To stand there with my scarf outstretched and to join in on the chorus of [the anthem], “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” was a proud moment for me.
4. I am a light sleeper and “sometime” insomniac.
5. I speak German — badly. I’ve been lucky to be able to travel and use it over the years.
