5 Questions with Jenn Zahrt


What would you change about yourself?

I don’t know what I would change. Wait! I would want red hair.

Your hero?

I don’t actually have one but there are some people who have influenced me that come to mind. Bjork, Tilda Swinson and Joan of Arc.

What’s the one thing in the last 24 hours that made you happy?

I didn’t know I was going to be here (NORWAC) so I had nothing to wear to the banquet. Went to Value Village and found a dress. A yellow dress. That made me happy.

Your favorite childhood memory?

The time I flew by myself from London to Austin, Texas. I was underage. Eight years old. They upgraded me to first class and I had the whole section to myself.

What is your most vivid memory?

My family didn’t often camp but one year we went camping in the mountains of Santa Fe. In the middle of the night I had to pee. That meant I had to put my pants on. One leg was really narrow, the other leg relly wide. I walked out of the tent with my parents, got to the camp bathroom, turned the light on and I had my sweatshirt on, not my pants. One leg was in the arm, the other in the main body of the sweatshirt. What’s more, I stretched out what was my favorite sweatshirt!
