Isaac Pickett - Where do you want to see yourself in five years? Coming home from an LDS mission, and attending BYU, working on a degree in Science or music. - What are your favorite hobbies? I love playing the piano, and musical theater is the most fun way to spend my time.

I'd probably want to talk to David Wilcox, even though technically he's not from 'history' as it would typically be defined. He's a singer/songwriter of folk music and I'd love to ask him questions about how he writes his music, and I'd probably ask for some tips on guitar.Danielle Graves-Where do you want to see yourself in five years?

Music (singing, playing piano, guitar, flute, etc.) 4-wheeling, shooting guns, being outside, swimming, baking/cooking, being with my family, etc. -If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them? It would be with my great-uncle Lincoln who was shot down in WWII. I would just love to actually get to know him and about his life before he was killed. Seth Brown-Where do you want to see yourself in five years? Five years from now, I will be 21, about to turn 22. By that point, I hope that I will be a returned LDS missionary, with about two years of fully paid for college at BYU under my belt. I hope that I will be married, or looking forward to it in the near future. -What are your favorite hobbies? I enjoy hanging out with friends, reading, solving math, dancing, and cooking. -If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them? Joseph Smith, and "What's the most important thing I should do in preparation for my future?" If I couldn't meet Joseph Smith, my second choice would be George Washington, with the same question.

I hope in 5 years to be going to college and doing something useful with my life.

I am also planning on serving an LDS mission. What are you favorite hobbies? One of my favorite things to do is run. I run on the school cross-country team and totally love it. I also have played the violin for over 10 years and still really enjoy it. When I have free time, I like to eat good food and read the comics. I also love doing almost anything that is outside including camping, repelling, climbing, and backpacking.If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them?If I could talk to someone from history, I would want to meet Alexander Hamilton, I would ask him questions about why we set up the government the way he did.
