Hi! My name is Quiajah and I am 13 years old. I go to Bret Harte middle school and I am in the 8th grade. I am in a leadership class where we participate in the Spark program. This program gives us a look at a company and the different jobs for our future. I chose Ask.com, an Internet company, so I could learn about how a technology company operates. I noticed that Ask has more than just engineers. There is a need for writers in a tech company as well. For this project, I wrote a blog to understand the writing and editing process. Ask.com interviewed me about my favorite foods and I worked with my mentors to edit and post the blog. Hope you enjoy it!

Q: Tell us a little more about yourself?

I am from Oakland, CA, and my favorite things to do in my free time are draw, cook , and eat. My favorite foods are tacos, hot dogs and hot wings. 

Q: What do you like about Ask.com?

One thing I noticed and liked about Ask.com was their blog (blog.ask.com).  I enjoy sharing my opinion so I want to share with you my reviews on my favorite foods.

Q:  So how do you rank your favorite foods?

Based upon their flavor, texture, cook time.

Q: Why is cook time important to you?

Because if you wait for food for too long, sometimes you don’t want it anymore.

Q:  Do you like your tacos soft or crunchy?

I like my tacos crunchy! My favorite thing about tacos are their crispy shell.

So Tacos win for texture!!!

Q:  What is your favorite flavor of hot wings?

I like Buffalo Sauce Wings and I like to dip it in ranch dressing.  Sometimes I will eat the celery, but only if I dip it in the ranch.

So Hot Wings win for flavor!!!

Q: How do you like your hotdog cooked?

I like it grilled. It is fast and easy and I like the way the charred part tastes.

So Hot Dogs when for cook time!!!

Q: At the end of the day, which food would you choose to be your favorite?

Hot Wings! They are easy to eat, delicious, and spicy. I recommend getting wings from Wingstop in Oakland! They are the best!!!
