10 Questions with Annika Kuo

Get to know BalletX Independence Foundation Dance Fellow Annika Kuo in 10 questions!

Annika, if you could be any animal, what would it be?

I would be an owl just because I am such a night person and love staying up.

Where in the world do you want to visit?

Japan is definitely number one on my list … I want to go during their cherry blossom season.

What are some hobbies you enjoy when you’re not dancing?

I am a Netflix addict. I’ve probably watched almost every show on there. I also enjoy spending time with my dog Ollie! Nothing beats grabbing a coffee with friends and just reading outside too.

If you could only eat three foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel, penne vodka, and ramen.

If you could be an Olympic athlete, what sport would you compete in?

I would definitely compete in tennis since I used to play and really loved it.

If you were guaranteed to be successful in a different profession, what would you do?

I would either own a cafe in a small town or do something in fashion, since I love coffee and clothes.

What is your favorite band?

A band I really like is Glass Animals … I’ve been listening to Heat Waves nonstop recently.

What is one of your pet peeves?

One of my biggest pet peeves is when you’re in a rush and there are slow walkers in front of you (granted this is probably because I’m always running late).

What is your favorite Philadelphia landmark?

I actually haven’t visited Philadelphia too much, so I don’t really have a favorite landmark. Not sure if this counts, but I would say Rittenhouse Square and walking (more like shopping) down Walnut Street.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

Travel out of the country alone … I haven’t done this myself, but I’m hoping to do it sometime in the near future!
