If you were an element, what element would
you be and why?
Ir (Iridium) because it is the most corrosive-resistant element known, meaning, it is not affected by water, chemicals or acids. There are many elements that change under different stressors and conditions, and while this lends to the beauty of the world we live in, I also appreciate that there is one that is not affected and remains constant, unchanging and enduring – qualities that perhaps compliment some of my own personal characteristics
