Emily Kendall-Brown

Q: What topic could you spend hours talking about?
A: Crafting, it's my passion in life! I got started with crafting when I began working with wood. I made cookbook stands and Lazy Susans. Then, I wanted to explore other types of crafts so I expanded my knowledge and learned how to make home decor using hand-crafted rolled paper. Not only do I love discovering and learning new crafting techniques, l also really enjoy hearing how other crafters come up with their creations.

Q: If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?
A: I would want to be able to teleport since I love to travel. It would be great to teleport myself to other countries so I don't have to fly.

Q: If you could be an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in?
A: If softball was still an Olympic sport, that is the one I'd want to compete in because I played it for years. I was on a couple of all-star and championship teams when I was in school, and I played left field and center field. I hope to coach in a softball league someday, too.

Q: What unusual food combinations do you enjoy?
A: I discovered the goodness of Oreos dipped in peanut butter. It's a great combination of sweet and salty together.

Q: If you could be any superhero, which one would you be? Why?
A: I'd want to be Spiderman because I want to shoot webs and swing from skyscrapers. It seems like a fun thing to do!
