For example:

Did you eat a lot of candy when you were a child?

Most band 6 students: Yes, of course. All kids like candy. I loved it.

You: [paraphrased from video] Of course I loved candy! All kids do. My favorite was… I don’t remember the exact name, but it was a package of 3 differently-flavored sour sugars. It came with a hard, white sugar stick that you licked, dipped in the sugar, and ate. I’m sure it’s full of chemicals, but I adored it.

What colors would you not use to paint the walls in your home?

Most band 6 students: Black. That’s depressing.

You: [paraphrased from video] I stay away from dark colors. They make the room look smaller and suck up the light. My room, for example, has one wall that is eggshell white, a matte color. There’s also one wall that is light blue. I like having an accent wall, featuring a color that makes me feel positive.
