Kobe Bryant follows Amara Baptist on Twitter. Can you top that? I don’t think so.
Is Amara a huge sports fan? She is indeed. But she has also been a professional dancer. That takes dedication.
Get to know @Amarina27 in her own words.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@Amarina27: My favorite qualities in a love interest would have to be a sense of humor, being open-minded about people and life, and ambition.
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@Amarina27: I appreciate the fact that my friends will tell me if they disagree with my decisions without being afraid of a potential (probable) overreaction.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@Amarina27: My idea of happiness is having all of my family and close friends near to me, to live in a world where everyone smiles back at you, NO TRAFFIC, and an abundance of pizza and basketball.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@Amarina27: Being completely alone…on the 405…and no pizza or basketball.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@Amarina27: This is a tough one…I’d have to say my favorite fictional character would be Fat Amy from Pitch Perfect.
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@Amarina27: My favorite thing to eat is anything Italian (pizza) and to drink would be coffee. If we are talking alcohol wise, I love me some white wine.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@Amarina27: My cell phone, my laptop, coffee, NBA League Pass, and family. (I could definitely live without 4 of these but would rather not).
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@Amarina27: The number one item on my bucket list would be to live in Italy for a few months.
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @Tammy)
@Amarina27: I want to meet a bunch of people! But I’d really like to meet @ramonashelburne. She is one of the best at what she does and I love seeing such a strong and intelligent woman succeeding in the sports industry.
@OneChicklette: How many days do you think you would you go without speaking a single word, if you were being paid $100,000 a day for every consecutive day you didn’t speak? (this amazing question came via @BrianSpaeth)
@Amarina27: I would definitely not even make 2 hours. I am Italian. Speaking is more essential to life than sleep.
OneChicklette: via @AndiLavs What was the last kind thing you did?
@Amarina27: The last kind thing I did was smile and talk to someone who had an extreme physical disability. I wouldn’t even consider this a “kind” thing because that should be a normal part of life, but he said that my smile and acknowledgment of him made his day.
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@Amarina27: If someone were to make a movie out of your life, who would you hope would play you?
OneChicklette: Random shout out
@Amarina27: Shout out to @TheNoLookPass, The Dodgers (go blue!), the inventor of pizza (God love you), and Pau Gasol (he’s just so nice he should always get a shout out).
Yay! Thanks for the shoutout!
