19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would go forward because life is full of so many opportunities and experiences. Going forward would give me the time to experience all that life has to offer!

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? I would pick Henrietta Lacks. We read a book about her and HeLa cells in my AP biology class and I am so intrigued by her. I would ask her what her opinion was about all the advancements her cells have been used for in science.
