How do you like to spend your time?
Kristiana: Practice my dancing and gymnastics.
Lauren: I like to play with my friends on our electronics.

What do you think will be different about the world when you are an adult?
Kristiana: I think a lot of things will be different.
Lauren: When I’m an adult I think the world will be more advanced. There will be more technology and buildings. I think there won’t be as much open land.

Who are your best friends and why do you like each other?
Kristiana: My best friends are Bridget and Kenia, I like them because they are nice and funny.
Lauren: My best friends are Aubrey and Lexie. I have a lot in common with Aubrey so we get along. Lexie and I are close and I feel comfortable around her. I feel like
I can be myself.

What do you think your parents do at work all day?
Kristiana: Work and make money.
Lauren: My mom is a teacher so she teaches kids and does paperwork all day. My dad is a drug tester so he tests people and works on the computer.

What’s the most important rule that you know of?
Kristiana: Always be respectful.
Lauren: I think the most important rule is for people not to vandalize because it ruins things and hurts people’s feelings.
