Do you practice sport?

“No, I’m not much of a sports person. I’m not good at it. I’m on stage. It’s fun to pretend to be someone else for a moment, and try to feel that person’s emotions.

“I have a nice class, no groups. We all play together and I get along well with everyone. I used to be very shy, but that has completely disappeared since sixth grade.
