Hi Veronica! What’s your secret talent? Hair braiding. I taught myself from watching YouTube videos. I love adding in coloured extensions too! What’s your most embarro moment? I was on holidays in Singapore and my family and I were at the beach. We were about to leave but I wanted to rinse my shoes. I went down to the water and my shoe started floating away! Panicking, I was trying to get my shoe back but the wavy beach was so strong, it made me fall in… it was so embarrassing! If you started a band, what would you call it? I’d call my band True Image because my name ‘Veronica’ means ‘true image’ in Latin. What’s your all-time favourite movie? The Lizzie McGuire Movie.

they have a school for that?!

Hamburger University You’d be McLovin this school if you’re a fan of burgers and fries! Hamburger University is a McDonald’s training facility for managers.

Although this sounds like a delish class, all the food in the labs is unfortunately fake. Boo!

All classes, even recess and lunch, were held in the large natural cave, carved inside a mountain over thousands of years. The best part is, there was never a wet weather day! Spy high Do you think you have what it takes to…

I sat down next to my next my friends and suddenly felt a sneeze coming on, so I sneezed and farted at the same time. My friends started to laugh and I went really red. “A bit of a…
