Proust Questionnaire

The Proust Questionnaire is a questionnaire about one's personality. Its name and modern popularity as a form of interview is owed to the responses given by the French writer Marcel Proust.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST FEAR?  Losing those close to me.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE OCCUPATION? I most enjoy styling people, it allows me to be artistic and communicate with people to make them look and feel their best.   


WHAT HISTORICAL FIGURE DO YOU MOST IDENTIFY WITH?  I often identify strongly with tragic historical figures who happened to die young : Edie Sedgwick,  Marie Antoinette,  and Anne Boleyn. I have a fascination with these women who can have such a presence in such a short time. 


WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE FICTIONAL HERO? Atticus Finch


WHO ARE YOUR REAL-LIFE HEROES? my parents, my grandparents, those who fight in service for the country, those of the "greatest generation".


WHAT IS YOUR MOST TREASURED POSSESSION? My white Jetta, I love my girly car, even if it needs a good wash and a few dents removed.
