Let’s Learn about Zaq

  1. What’s your favorite part about your job?
    There are many things to enjoy about being the NexGen Director at Ingomar Church. However, working with teenagers keeps you on your toes. You never know what is going to happen next!
  2. What TV/movie world would you want to be a part of?
    I would like to live in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a world where superheroes and supervillains clash in epic battles, where advanced technology coexists with ancient artifacts, and where the fate of the universe hangs in the balance on a regular basis.
  3. What’s your least favorite chore?
    Mowing the lawn. It’s just going to grow back in a week’s time.
  4. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
    You might find this hard to believe but I am definitely more introverted than extroverted. In fact, I am an INFJ on the Meyers Briggs Scale. INFJ are described as “Idealistic and principled, people with the INFJ personality type (Advocates) aren’t content to coast through life – they want to stand up and make a difference. For these compassionate personalities, success doesn’t come from money or status but from seeking fulfillment, helping others, and being a force for good in the world.”
  5. Have you ever met anyone famous?
    I’ve had the incredible fortune to cross paths with several famous athletes, but one encounter stands out as particularly memorable. It was at Disney World where I had the honor of meeting Cal Ripken Jr., a baseball legend. As my grandfather and I approached him, he warmly greeted us with a handshake. However, he kindly explained that he wouldn’t be posing for photos or signing autographs that day. Instead, he emphasized that he was there to embrace his role as a father and didn’t want anything to detract from his children’s enjoyment of the experience.
