How long have you lived here in East Coulee? I’m just here for the summer actually. Otherwise I study in
What brought you here in the first place? I wanted to spend time in the town, it was a good job opportunity, the pay was really nice and the people were nice so it all worked out.

Do you have any favourite books? Maybe something I’ve read very recently for history would be ‘Rise and Fall of the Third Reich’ by William L. Shirer. It’s about World War II and the German state, so like Nazis basically.
If you could have supper with anyone dead or alive, who would you pick? Winston Churchill, maybe Leon Trotsky because I love Russian history too. I’d probably say Tolstoy, a Russian author who wrote a lot of like classic Russian literature.
