Question 1: What is your favorite fairy tale and why?
A: My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. From a young age I have had a personal attachment to the story and identified with Belle as a strong, intelligent heroine. I also value the underlying moral that beauty comes from within.
Question 2: Why do you think fairy tales are still important in today's society?
A: I think fairy tales have continued to be important in society, because they introduce children to valuable lessons in a way they can understand and be entertained by. The stories that everyone grows up learning shape us as people and set our society’s moral principles.
Question 3: If you could be any fairy tale character which one would you be and why?
A: I would choose to be Belle, because she is independent, intelligent, and doesn’t let her society define her. Belle serves as a good role model for young women to realize they can write their own stories.
