Mr. PALS: Austin Ramby

Q: Do you have hobbies that you like to do in your free time?

A: I work a lot outside of school. I get to work for a professional theatre company outside of school, so I get to do lights and build sets for them.

Q: What are you most looking forward to for the competition?

A: Getting to be on stage. As a technician, I’m usually backstage, so I’m excited to be on the stage and getting to have fun with the fellow contestants.

Q: Who is your favorite superhero? Your hero in real life?

A: Superman. He’s super strong, he can fly, it’s great. My real life hero would be my boss, Cameron Hefty. I look up to him because he gets to do what he wants in life, and instead of following what his parents said he should do, he did what he wanted to do. Now, he’s happy and successful, and I think that’s a good thing to look forward to.

Q: If you could only have one food for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

A: It’s a dish called Chicken Pasta Primo from Jason’s Deli. I get that at least once or twice a week.

Q: Do you have a favorite joke to tell?

A: Why did Abraham Lincoln never go to jail? Because he’s in-a-cent.

Q: If you could choose one person from history and have them truthfully answer any question, who would you choose and what would you ask?

A: I would want to ask Harry Houdini how he did his tricks. I think hearing all of his stories would be awesome.
