Where did you go to school?
I went to eight different schools, five in Washington DC and three in Johannesburg, South Africa.

What was your hobby as a child?
I played netball for a school team.

What’s your most memorable childhood moment?
I loved (and still do) going to Disneyland.

Did you ever get sent to the naughty corner and why?
I was a quiet and obedient child, too scared to do anything wrong!

What was your favourite childhood toy and why?
My favourite toy was a doll almost as tall as I was, so that I could be her mummy.

What was your nickname growing up?
My grandmother called me “lienkies”, shortening the end of my name “lene” and in Afrikaans adding “kie” at the end of something means small or little.
