She’s so Nous! Meet Izzy ~
Hi! My name is Izzy Hoffman.
I am 15 years old!
3. Where are you from?:
I am from sunny Phoenix, Arizona!
4. Which superpower would you want to have?:
I would definitely love to have the ability to fly because imagine the views! Also, it would reduce the amount of pollution from cars, and because I love birds!
5. Do you have a book that changed your life?:
As silly as this may sound, the one book that really shaped me to be who I am today, was actually a series that I read a in about 3rd grade called: “How to Train your Dragon.“
It really helped me to grow a passion for animals and it taught me how to be loving, and giving to others. There were other ramifications from reading this book at such a young age… a house full of pets, starting with a bearded dragon named “Weezy,” who is now eight years old!
6. Do you believe in ghosts?:
I think I have to say yes to that. I mean, how else would I lose all of my socks, my homework, and my jewelry? Obviously I didn’t lose them…
7. Which emoji would best capture your essence?:
This emoji – To me, this emoji is excited, fashionable, and ready for an adventure!
8. When you eat a bag of candy, do you save the best flavors for last? Or, do they go first?:
I’ve always tried to be one of those “save the best for last” types of people, as they seem to have so much willpower, but…it’s candy! I just can’t resist and I end up eating the best first, or whatever I see first.
9. Where would you take your dream vacation?:
My dream vacation would be to visit the country of Chile. My first stop would be the Santuario Igualdad (@santuariogualdad), an amazing animal sanctuary run by two beautiful people who rescue the most vulnerable creatures, having been victims of the meat and dairy industries. Then, I would head to the thousands of miles of amazing coastline and, of course, a hike into the beautiful Andes!
10. Favorite movie or T.V show soundtrack?:
The Stranger Things soundtrack is epic because it’s all 80’s classics and I love 80’s music. It’s so upbeat, fun, and no autotune!
11. What’s the most embarrassing trend you gave into?:
Oh man…too many for sure. Probably the most embarrassing would be the Silly Band era. I remember when there were days I’d go to school with Silly Bands covering each limb…fully.
12. What’s under your bed?:
Honestly, a lot of things. The secret to keeping such a clean and organized room is to shove everything under your bed!
13. What’s your favorite 1990’s-2000’s jam?:
Well, I don’t know if this is still my current fave, but it for sure used to be. When I was really young, I used to sing Gwen Stefani’s song called “Sweet Escape,” but to me, I referred to it as the “Woo Woo Song” (due to the main chorus background vocals). Interesting choice, I suppose?
14. Who/What inspires you the most?:
I would say that my mom’s passion and energy inspires me the most. She always puts in her best effort for anything and anyone, which takes a lot of compassion. She is also a very hard worker and she deals with a lot, but is always there to support me with all her heart in my career!
Thank you mom, for everything you do for me, I wouldn’t be typing this right now if it wasn’t for you.
