"The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting." Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting WHAT INSPIRES YOU MOST? I am inspired by stories of ordinary people whose optimism and can-do attitude allow them to prevail over significant obstacles in their lives. The success stories of immigrants in the United States, as well as in other countries, resonate deeply with me. A SKILL YOU'D LIKE TO LEARN? How to put together anything from IKEA! IF YOU COULD LIVE IN A BOOK OR MOVIE, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I wouldn't mind stepping into the shoes of any number of the dramatis personae of the Japanese movie Tampopo. It's a cinematic world populated by food-obsessed characters, and I would love to join in their quest for the perfect ramen. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY? I'd like to be omnilingual, so I could read works of literature in their original languages and have meaningful conversations no matter where I travel. 10 AALL SPECTRUM | WWW.AALLNET.ORG
