In the latest installment of our popular feature, Quriosity Productions Executive Producer and Co-Founder Qadree Holmes answers Five Questions with SCREEN.
SCREEN: Can you cook? What’s your go-to dish?
HOLMES: Yes I can cook. I would say it is a toss up between my mom’s southern mac and cheese and my “Blizzard Chili” named after the blizzard of 2011
SCREEN: Who wins the 2016 presidential election? Why/how?
HOLMES: Hillary Clinton hands down. She will continue to unite our country and celebrate the wonderful benefits of America’s diversity.
SCREEN: Best advice you’ve ever been given?
HOLMES: Learn to invest in yourself. You can have anything you want in life if you’re willing to work for it.
SCREEN: Weekend getaway. Anywhere. Where to? Why?
HOLMES: Lake Geneva. There is something very charming and magical about that town. I’m always amazed by the views when boating on that lake.
SCREEN: If you could change one thing, what would you change?
HOLMES: I would change the public perception that a “Q” is always followed by a “U” since my name Qadree is not followed by a “U”. There always seems to be a “U” that gets added subconsciously by people writing, typing or pronouncing my name. I’ve learned since kindergarten to answer to all the 100 variations.
SCREEN: Celebrity crush? Why?
HOLMES: Prince Harry, I actually added a picture of him to a collection of my family photos. Troy (my husband) quickly took that down!
