“What do you do for fun?”

“I like to scuba dive, and to throw knifes. Also archery.”

“How did you get started in throwing knifes?”

“I was watching a movie with my dad and the main person in the movie would throw knifes and my dad started to joke around that I should start doing that. And that was in sixth grade, and that Christmas my dad got me a knife set.”

“Where do you practice?”

“I can either practice in my backyard throwing knifes at trees or I have a target in the basement I can use. But I rather use the target because I like to see all the times I can hit the middle and to get better on my accuracy.”

“What about archery? How did you get started with that?”

“When I was in fifth grade I dressed up as Katniss Everdeen from the book ‘The Hunger Games’ for Halloween and to complete the outfit I bought a bow, and ever since then I used my bow and got even more.”
