If you could go back to any era in time or witness any major event in history, which one would it be, and why? I would like to go back to back to the 1920s ( because I don’t think I could survive without some perks of the modern world, if I went any further back!). And I would like to have experienced the women’s movement and been a part of it too.
Your greatest fear. My greatest fear is not being a good person. To me, a good person means being a good mum, a good friend and family member, a good boss/ colleague and partner. Being able to treat everyone fairly and seeing the good in them, and helping others when they need it.
