Punk Rocker

Thought the only unconventional one in my entire clan was moi -- until niece Kat Rosca Taylor showed up and showed me. Only daughter of my younger sister, she does heavy metal cum punk rock, writes lyrics and is the lead vocalist and sole female in a band called Saydie -- which she pronounces Sehdi but which I keep (mis)pronouncing as "say die" -- as in say what? Click on\saydiemusic, if you dare.

Hi. Would your niece and friends like to be part of my global youth viewpoints book? I don't have any Philippino input.
Greetings from California. I'm writing a book that gives you and other young people around the world an opportunity to say what's on your mind. This is your chance to be heard. Many of you have wonderful suggestions for how to make our world a better to live in, so I'm asking people age 19 and under to respond to 10 questions. I’ll compare your answers by age, gender, and location.
See for the questions and photos of schools and students I’ve visited on three continents. Also see
(I’ve written other peer-based books for youth, including The Teen Trip: The Complete Resource Guide and How to Survive Your Parents’ Divorce: Kids’ Advice to Kids.) Please also forward to kids and their teachers so they can be part of the global youth book.
Thanks, Gayle Kimball, Ph.D.

1. If you could ask a question of the wisest person in the world,
what would you ask her or him about life?
2. What bothers you in your daily life? What practice best helps you stay calm?
3. If there was one thing you could change about adults, what
would it be?
4. What would you like to change about yourself?
5. What do you like to do for fun?
6. When have you felt most loved by someone else?
7. Why do you think you’re here on earth; what’s your purpose?
8. On a scale of 1 to 100, how highly would you grade your
school? Why?
9. What work would you like to do when you're an adult?
10. If you were the leader of your country, what changes would you make?
11. Imagine you get to write on a T-shirt going on a trip around the world. What do you want your T-mail to say to people?

What questions are missing that you’d like to answer? Your email. . . . . . .
What first name would you like used in the book to quote you?
How old are you?
Girl or boy?
What city and country do you live in?
Gracias! Merci! Danke! Arrigato! Chi chi!

She's a good kid. Just been through a lot. She deserves every bit of success that she gets. She told me a lot about you. How she enjoyed your company in Hawaii. About your life story and the tribulations you had to endure. Strong will runs in the family. I stood by her side as she suffered in the piss pot of L.A. I cared for her and promised to get her home. Up to this day she makes me proud in all that she accomplishes. She has the most amazing eyes, which is how I fell for her. I stood by her side and took better care of her than that "TRASH" she had to keep dragging around. She loves to smile and always tried to make me smile for her. Always said I was too serious. She is absolutely Hilarious !!! I loved it when she would make me laugh, her eyes would gleam, as she made me smile. I don't think there's any animal she doesn't like. Animals are naturally attracted to her. One time, when we had to get a tire fixed, the shop owner had parrots freely roaming around. Out of nowhere one of the parrots climbs down from it's nest and walks up to her just to get petted. She loves Possums. She said " They are cute but are just misunderstood".

She never belonged here in this land. Still I stood by her side, as long as it took. I' am glad she is back home now and has regained control of her life. She earned it.

You have an amazing niece. I miss her greatly.
