One interesting fact about Amadita: I love adventure.
Favorite book: I don’t have a favorite book, I like to read none fiction. I read a lot of philosophy books, biographies and books about our society/economics/politics/history. Philosophy books help me develop my own ideas and be open to different perspectives. Biographies give me hope. The rest of the books I read to gain perspective.
Favorite movie: Pitch Perfect. I can watch it over and over again.
