Below is her answer to "If I was given "3" wishes and each must be sincere":

* My first wish would be for a golden cloak of love. That shone the warmth of happiness, as it enfolded all who touched it, with a sense of peace and tranquility.
* My second wish would be for the flower of my family. The white ginger blossoms of purity for the women of my ancestry. A future of many tomorrows.
* My third wish is a simple one. My wish that every person may find within themselves a paradise of peace, a cloak of love, and the flower in their hearts of their youth.
