Name and Twitter handle: Karra Barron

Occupation: Freelance Copywriter and Journalist for @VancouverView @ReachMagazine and @sweetspotdotca

A notable moment on Twitter? When one of my favourite authors answered my question on how she got her big break. I love how Twitter gives you a direct connection to people you probably would never otherwise get a chance to talk to or meet.

Your best Tweet: I honestly have no idea! I’m just gonna say they’re all awesome.

What did you want to be growing up? An author…or a zoologist because I love animals, but then a dog bit me and it was all over.

If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? J.K Rowling because that dinner would just be magical (har har). For real though, I’d pick her brain relentlessly and tell her how awesome she is for getting a whole generation of kids interested in reading. #HarryPotter4Lyf

Your claim to fame: The funny/ugly faces I make in pictures. Yeah, I’m THAT girl who ALWAYS ruins the nice pictures…

Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? I love the Horizon run on Cypress Mountain because there’s a part as you’re going down where you get the most spectacular, breathtaking view of Vancouver. It’s not exactly a hidden gem, but you could miss it if you zoom down the run too fast.

If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? Sailor Moon because, like me, she’s extremely loyal, food obsessed and hopeless at math. Oh, and she gets to be with Tuxedo Mask. Who wouldn’t want to be her?!
If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why? An artichoke because you need to put in a little work to make it into my heart.

Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition? @lovesaschie because her tumblr is full of beautiful and awesome things. I love browsing her blog to inspire or lift up my day. As a friend, she isn’t too shabby either!

Describe yourself in 3 words: Adventurous, curious, hilarious
