"Who are you?" This is a question Rachel and I like to ask ourselves and others. We realized that we both like to ask questions, so we created this blog. In our interviews, we ask inspiring people questions about their fields of expertise, their personal philosophies, and their views on society. I hope you learn something about yourself or society at large from reading these interviews.-Tiffany
