It’s impossible to be inspired by someone younger than you, and being fresh into her teenage years, Avaya is constantly inspiring. Even though she still has to grow and evolve, she is already exceeding in life. Her resilience against verbal attacks is awe inspiring; I wish I had that. These are the interview questions in the order they were asked.

Someone loyal and funny but also isn’t afraid to act themselves.
