Katie Bean was subjected to answering a ton of ridiculous questions in rapid succession by Levi Miller. She was a great sport! Here are the results:
Levi: I’m so excited to finally be talking! I can’t wait to share with the world, how fun you are!
Katie: Thank you! Just please don’t ask me about how long it’s been since I washed my hair. Ask me anything! I’m ready!
L: If you could add any color to the Crayola collection what color would you add?
K: Maple Tree Green, because I love the outdoors and trees
L: Do you want to be a tree?
K: No, that’s ridiculous.
L: If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?
K: I would pay off my student loans. I would also make a generous donation to my camp. My family is very important to me and I would pay for my siblings to go to college. A trip to Sweden would be my frivolous purchase. I’d mostly do boring things like investing.
L: Who inspires you, in the camping industry?
K: Jack and Laura at Stomping Ground are so inspiring. The courage they had to travel across America and then having the drive to take everything they learned to start their own camp is incredible. They have had success with a unique path and that is fantastic to see.
L: How many windows are there in New York City?
A: One Bajillion
L: Is that a real number?
K: Probably not.
L: If you were gifted an elephant and you had to keep it, what would you do with it?
K: I would parade it around and show everybody how cool I am.
K: No, no, definitely not. I would use it for a camp equestrian program. Like, for the highest level of riders.
L: What do you do with a camper that doesn’t want to participate in an activity?
K: I explain challenge by choice as well as I want them to know about learning zones and comfort zones. Once kids know about those things they are generally more likely to entertain the idea of doing something they are nervous about.
L: If you could play a game of Monopoly with any three people, living or dead, who would you choose?
K: Me, myself, and I.
K: No, of course not! I would have to say Rockefeller, Oprah, and Obama. They are all just people I have a lot of questions for.
L: What are you known for in your work places?
K: I am known for being direct. People can count on me to tell them the truth while being kind and compassionate.
L: What is your 90’s jam?
K: Easy! Return of the Mack!
L: I’ll have to look it up, I’m not well versed.
K: It’s the so good!
L: What’s your best advice for people going into an interview?
K: Don’t over or undersell yourself. Just be you. Be the best version of yourself. If you tell the truth about everything, you don’t have to remember anything. Just be honest and real.
L: Thank you so much for going on this ridiculous ride with me! You are super brave for answering all of my questions!
K: Thank you so much! Have a great day!
