When asked “ if you could make your own mixtape what is one song that would be on it or that you think would really help people understand who you are at your core” all three of them had great answers. Gemma said “I personally love my Mariah Carey, I love my R&B. I really was not listening to todays music alot but I love Heat Waves by Glass Animals, some Doja Cat, and Mariah Carey of course, Celine Dion, my 90’s queens.”. Audrey responded with “I do listen to some music today like Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, some K-pop. According to my Spotify, I listen to a lot of J-pop. So I would have a lot of those kinds of songs on my list. I just like really fast paced songs”, and Olga said “Two songs that I always like to go back to is called September by Earth, Wind & Fire, it gets me to jam and it’s a very great song, and also this more recent song called Time of Our Lives. I always listen to it with my brother so it brings back those lovely memories. Honestly, I know it’s very boring but I listen to all sorts of music.”
