What punctuation mark would you be and why?

A question mark. My curiosity has always guided me. Why are you asking?

What's your hidden talent?

I'm capable of connecting any topic of conversation to Beyoncé.

Who is your hero?

My Grandfather, who went from being illiterate to getting his Masters in Electrical Engineering in the midst of colonization.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

Either Aja Naomi King or Lupita Nyong’o. Both Yale School of Drama graduates would need to wear very high heels to make the portrayal accurate, though.
