Well, i'm Veronica Calista Rani and i'm 21. call me Vero or Ronnie or just plain old Veronica. anyway, i'm a final year communications student majoring in Journalism and Mass Communications and i'm a pretty good student. my style of writing is not very suitable for hard news but its perfect for columns and features. i'm willing to try anything at least once, except when it comes to food. the only meat i'm willing to eat is chicken, fish, lamb and beef. everything else is a no-no. some may view it as hypocrisy when i say i'm an animal lover but yet i'm a non-vegetarian but i believe that u have to be in a person's shoes to understand them. i used to be a cheerleader in highschool and it was tough because of the stereotypes. one of my proudest moments in life is that i showed all the haters that i was just as smart when my a-level results came out.(i beat out some of those who were considered smartasses). i plan on studying law once i get my degree. i have 6 dogs and i love them to bits. and i have 2 sisters, one's 3 years older and the other is 19 years younger. i'm well travelled and i've lived in different places for long periods of time. i'm malaysian but currently i'm in australia.
After doing so, answer these 3 questions:
Q1: What is the 1 thing that most people usually like about you? Share 2 “colourful” situations (be detailed, please) where someone told you that they liked this “1 thing” about you.
boring, but one thing people like about me is that i'm able to make them feel at ease really quickly.
sit 1: i was at a party once and i saw this girl standing all by herself. it was obvious that she was shy and that she wasn't very popular. anyway, i was with my friends and i heard some people calling her a nerd and such. anyway, i felt awful because she didn't deserve that kind of treatment.i walked up to her and started talking to her. at first she thought i was just toying with her, making fun of her but eventually i got her out of her shell and just introduced her to a few people i felt she would be comfortable with. a few days later a friend of hers (one she made at the party) came up to me and said that she sang praises about me and that if not for me she would continue being miserable and friendless. i was touched. she might not have told this to me directly but all the same, i felt great.
sit 2: i was on the debate team in my first year of college and i convinced a friend of mine to join. she's the really shy type but she's really intelligent and i knew that with her on the team we had a good shot of winning. anyway, despite protesting she joined. the day of the debate she got really nervous and started crying. i gave her a hug and told her "jennifer, this is all in your head. there's nothing to be afraid of. this is one topic you're passionate about. and you're in command here. its an opportunity for you to show these people out there that still waters run deep". she managed to shake off her jitters and she came in so close to winning best speaker. after the debate (which we won) she came up to me and said that i really helped her compartmentalize her feelings and that i inspired her. once again, i was touched to the core.
Q2: What 1 person, who lives with you OR lives in your neighbourhood, would you want the other “The Surviving Link” players to meet? Please specify why you chose this person and what this person means to you.
i would want everyone to meet best friend Isabella. she's an incredible woman. she's a student and she's been supporting her education all by herself since the start of uni. and she helps out in her family as well. and to add to that, she also volunteers at the old folks home and childrens home. i love her to bits because she's been there for me in times of need over and over again. plus, she's gorgeous!
Q3: You have been granted a wish. For the rest of your life, you would NOT have to do one of the following ever again. Which one would you choose and why?
• Brush your teeth
brushing my teeth. its one thing i hate doing by still do 3 times a day. i hate the taste of toothpaste and everytime i brush my teeth i HAVE to brush my tongue. and when i brush my tongue, the gag raflex is just not fun.
