Q:Firstly Sinta, what’s it like being a student in Bali?
A:Well it’s an early start – 7am we have to be in class but we do finish at 2pm. Many people have other jobs they have to go to, to support them through University. After 2pm, I go to the library for a few hours to do my homework. I’m not far from my parents but I live in a boarding house. On Saturday and Sunday, like International students we have the weekend off and I visit my parents and help in the house and I go to the Ashram.

Q:What are your hobbies and what do you do for fun?
A:I love traditional Balinese dance; my mother taught me how to dance when I was a child. Balinese dance is very important for ceremonies and festivals in the village. All children learn to dance the traditional way from an early age and we all love to dance. Plus I like singing and playing badminton. And like all Western girls I like to have fun with my friends going to the beach or cycling.
Q:Which celebrity do you admire?
A:I admire Angelina Jolie for her compassionate and humanitarian work. I also like her movies.
Q:Who is your favourite band/singer?
A:Adele, she is especially motivational especially for me

Thanks Sinta.
