She’s so Nous! Meet Haley ~
My name is Haley Kubesh
2.) What’s your age and where are you from?:
I am 16 years old and I am from Laguna Hills, a small area in Orange County.
3.) Do you have a book that changed your life?:
A book that changed my life was A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. It reminded me of the strength that all women have and the resilience of the human soul through tragedy and difficult situations. This book is a wonderful message to never give up and never let someone own you, be true to yourself always and find freedom through your own abilities.
4.) Which superpower would you want to have?:
If I could have one superpower it would be to read minds. I’m constantly trying to figure out what others are thinking. When I’m older, I am interested in being a therapist because honestly I’m just too curious about other people’s brains.
5.) What is the funniest thing that happened to your recently?:
A fun fact about me is that every time I’m with my friends, we all end up laughing hysterically about something and I say “this is the funniest thing that’s ever happened.” All my friends make fun of me because it could be literally 20 minutes later and I’ve already changed my mind about the “funniest thing that’s ever happened”.
6.) If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?:
If I had to choose one thing I was most passionate about, it would be modeling. I’ve been modeling since I was 9 and have always loved being able to bring life to pictures with my expressions and connect with photographers. I always have a sense of fulfillment after a good shoot and I feel so confident. I almost feel like my on set personality is my alter ego.
7.) What’s your guilty pleasure?:
My guilty pleasure is eating cookies n cream ice cream and binge watching netflix shows instead of sleeping at night. Oops. 😉
8.) Where would you take your dream vacation?:
My dream vacation would be Paris during winter. I’m obsessed with Christmas decorations and the cozy feel during that time of year, so sightseeing in Paris, wearing fashionable scarves, boots, and sipping hot cocoa would be a dream come true.
Music makes me feel nostalgic a lot, for instance my mom always used to sing, “You are my Sunshine,” to my twin brother and I growing up. Whenever I hear that song, I always get a warm fuzzy feeling inside and long for the days when I was young and carefree.
10: What is your dream pet?:
My dream pet would be an adorable otter that I could keep in my bathtub and go for swims with. Don’t worry, I would invest in a swimming pool so it would have lots of room to play.
11.) How do you kick back and relax?:
I kick back and relax by reading, which I love because it transports me to a different place, and listening to jazz music on my record player, specifically Frank Sinatra. I’m obsessed with his music. I also love going to the beach and tanning with my best friends.
12.) What inspires you the most?:
What inspires me most are the small moments in life, for example when the sunshine warms your skin so nicely, a song speaks powerfully to your soul, or you see a rainbow that takes your breath away. In these moments I feel pure bliss and so connected to the universe. It reminds me of how much beauty there is in the world and inspires me to go out, do great things, explore, and experience more of this bliss.
