The People column publishes interviews with RF staff and members weekly. This week, DJCrystal was interviewed!
RNM: Hello DJCrystal, nice to have you here today for this interview! I’ll get us started simply – how has being in RF been for you lately?
DJCrystal: It’s been pretty good! Chatting with my pals, taking part in events, pretty awesome!
RNM: Good to hear! I’m glad you’ve been enjoying it. I know you started the Transformice clan, so I’d like to hear it personally from you – how has the Transformice clan been so far?
DJCrystal: It started off kinda cruddy at first, but now we’re gaining more and more members and having fun events like football! Overall, we’re doing much better than I hoped.
RNM: That’s great! I’m glad to hear things are improving so far. Is there anything you have in store for the clan itself that you’d like to talk about?
DJCrystal: I’m currently making adjustments to the event times so more troops can attend. I’m planning on hosting contests for prizes like cheese coins. If we get more members, I’ll start hosting harder competitions like fashion shows for prizes like furs and such!
RNM: Sounds like a lot of fun! Is there any special things you do now you want to tell us about?
DJCrystal: Well, high school and college is one thing I’ve been working on. I’ve reached that time where I have to stop laying in bed all day and join the wonderful world of adulthood! I’m working on applying for free college and such. I’m planning to become a computer scientist and a web/graphic designer, so I gotta work work work!
RNM: That’s wonderful! I wish you good luck! I’ve one final question for you – what do you expect for your clan going further?
DJCrystal: I’m expecting for my clan to have lots of active members whether they’re attending events, or just chilling on chat. I would like to see 20-30 at our Transformice events and maybe even become a division if we have enough members! I want the Transformice recruits to feel at home when they join the RF, Like I did when I joined
RNM: That’s really great to hear. You sound like a great leader with a healthy amount of optimism, and I like it! Thank you for this interview today!
DJCrystal: Thank you! And you’re welcome!
That concludes the interview with DJ Crystal – thanks to Brownboy for interviewing her!
