  • 1) What is your passion? How did you decide it was the right area for you to devote your time and energy?
    im still looking for my passion, at least a passion that can translate into a life career. i love books, movies, music. But probably most of all helping others. Listening and giving unbiasted advice.

    2) How has education made a difference in your life?
    i have two bachelor degrees but i feel like my best education has come from hearing other stories and dealing with my own life issues. Im most educated by my parents and their struggles and achievements.

    3) Do you have a parent or role model who taught you work ethic? How does their example influence you?

    whoa yes, my parents came from another country and when they came to the states they understood though Americas land of the free its also nothing nothing comes free in America.

  • Love getting these short interviews!! Every time one pops up in my inbox I get excited:)

    I wish I had some sort of cool answers to the questions up top.

    1. My passions change all the time. I have a bit of ADHD there. I wish I knew what I was born to do. I haven’t found it yet. I think the older I get it is simply to be a good mom and friend. I do hope that someday it comes to me (what my passion outside my family is?). I would love to spring out of bed everyday filled with desire for something.

    2. I went to school for things my parents thought were important. Now as my kids get ready for college I keep my mouth shut. I want them to figure out what they want to do.
    3. Both my parents had strong work ethics. My father especially impressed me because he never complained. He did everything with a smile.

    Brilliant- I loved this interview! Milla’s ‘jump in’ sort of attitude totally motivated me- and I really needed that today! Thank you, Amanda and Milla!!!

    Dad had 3 jobs — great example, not like today’s video game generation.

  • Milla is very inspiring especially to her fans. Me, I’am her fan even though I was just a highschool student but there are many things I learned from her. Like being passionate in what talent you have and can be useful in life.
