Q: you are very preety would you ever be a model
someday if someone asked you. — Farrah, 9, Mexico
Chrissy: Dear Farrah, Thank you so much for thinking that I’m pretty. Modeling
would be fun, but it’s not my thing. Maybe I would do it for a little while, if someone asked me,
but I like to play with and take care of animals mostly. I’d rather do that any day than modeling.
Q: Chrissy it is sooo cool that you want to be a vet so do I but did you ever think of
being like a zoo animal keeper or some kind of animal keeper instead of being a vet? — Marilyn,
Chrissy: Dear Marilyn, Thanks for the great suggestion! I have never thought
about being a zookeeper. Listen to this though, how cool would it be to be a vet at a zoo! Then
I could take care of BIG animals like lions, giraffes, and elephants. Thanks again, Marilyn!
Q: Dear Chrissy, I have a cat and my mom wants me to take her to the vet, but it hasn’t
even been 2 days since the last time we took her and she wants to take her again
— Brenda, 10, Puerto Rico
Chrissy: Dear Brenda, I know it’s hard to take your cat to the vet, especially
when she doesn’t want to go, but the vet will help to keep her healthy. I’m sure your mom
has a good reason for wanting to take her to the vet again, even if it is just to make sure your kitty
is SUPER well!
Q: Dear Chrissy, What’s your favorite recipe? — Gabriela, 7, Puerto Rico
Chrissy: My favorite recipe is for Locrío de Camarones, a rice and shrimp dish
from the Dominican Republic. My grandmother has a secret recipe that she shared with me. It’s so
Q: Hi Chrissy, I want to know if it is fun being an artist. — Celina, 9, Texas
Chrissy: Dear Celina, It’s a lot of fun! Anyone can be an artist – all it takes
is a little creativity and imagination! I like to draw and paint, and I even once took a pottery class
at the community center. I also make all kinds of arts and crafts projects. It’s even more fun
when I do these things with Maggie and Maya!
Q: WHAT IS YOUR GRANDMOTHER’S RECIPE? — SARAH, 6
Chrissy: Dear Sarah, My grandmother has a top secret recipe for black bean soup that her mother
taught her how to make when she was growing up in the Dominican Republic. No one knows the exact list
of ingredients, but she promised to show me how to make it when I’m a little older. Abuela’s
black bean soup is one of my very favorite foods ever! I’ve tasted black bean soup in restaurants
and other people’s homes, but hers is the best – I think it has to do with all of the onions,
garlic and special spices she uses. Mmmmmmm!
