Q&A with Nakita
Q: If you could choose anyone famous (real or fictional) to have dinner with who would they be and why?
I would be honored to have dinner with Frida Kahlo. A remarkable woman, Frida expressed herself boldly, passionately, creatively, and unapologetically throughout her life. Her fantastical art pieces are as emotionally evocative and relevant today as they were when they were created.
Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A famous artist gallivanting the world for inspiration!
Q: If a movie was made of your life what genre would it be, who would play you?
I would love to be in a romantic comedy with comedic icon Mindy Kaling as the lead.
