As I got closer to the animal-loving, funny, and creative Anne, I had to interview her again. We had a great time where I got to learn where her love of animals began. While doing this interview I got to learn the weights and lengths conversions from U.S. and Denmark.

Throughout the International Women’s Month research, I had all the women feel free to ask me questions the way I had been interviewing them, so for the last piece of the collection I pieced this together. It was interesting to find out what everyone wanted to know about me.
