Meet Kourtney! (Writer)
Hey everyone! You can call me Kourtney or Sgri (it’s a shortened Gaelic word that means “a writer’s business”). I’m 23 years old and live in the US. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in English in 2018 and I’m currently working as an executive assistant at a start-up. I’ve loved to write, ever since I was a small child. I remember sitting in a garage when I was ten, writing up a story about a superhero I had drawn during hall monitor duty at school that day. I don’t know what’s happened to that story a decade and a half later, but I’ve never stopped writing since.
Hi, Kourtney! What’s your Hogwarts house?
Slytherin. I wouldn’t say I’m the most cunning or tricky Slytherin, but I’m protective of my friends and family and will do anything to keep them safe and feeling good. I also have ambitious and perfectionistic tendencies.
What element would you like to bend?
Waterbender, mainly because I think it would be so cool to be able to move water around and no one could beat me in a water fight.
If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which ones would you keep?
I would probably keep Pinterest because I’m absolutely addicted to it, Tumblr because that’s where my people are, and my Webtoons app. I love the cartoons on that one, especially “Let’s Play!”, “I Love Yoo” and “Space Boy”.
What would your superpower be and why?
The ability to refill things. My bank account is empty? Refill it. My cereal is empty and I want more? Refill it. My gas tank is empty? Refill it. Someone makes me mad? Refill their bladder repeatedly or something. So many practical applications!
If you had a time machine, would go back in time or into the future?
I would go back in the past, mainly because there is so much that has been lost in history and I would love to learn more about ancient cultures. But also, if I went into the future and I knew what would happen, it might stress me out a ton because I might want to stop it.
Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight, or nighttime person?
I’m most definitely a morning/daytime person. After about 10 PM, I turn into a zombie who can barely keep her eyes open.
What is your favorite TV show?
At the moment, it’s Steven Universe. Some of my other favorites are Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, the Star Wars series, Star Trek, Ducktales (2017), My Hero Academia, and Avatar the Last Airbender.
What is your favorite magical or mythological animal?
If you’ve seen the TV series Hilda, I love the tiny elves in the show! They’re so cute and adorable and I want one to be my companion, riding on my shoulder or catching a ride in my hair.
