"I like strawberry ice cream."

Usually, Reddit’s AMA sessions are places for celebrities to shamelessly promote upcoming projects (or, occasionally, for 103-year-olds to mesmerize and entertain the curious community). One recent session, however, was filled from top to bottom with cuteness–because the Q&A recipients were a group of Indonesian children.

Redditor reese015 text-messaged fellow redditors’ queries to “Sofie” and her friends and recorded their answers. Everything from favorite activities to daily life was touched upon, all of it rich with unflinching childlike innocence.

What are some of the things you like about your life? (via NorthOfBarrie)

“I like strawberry ice cream.”

What is that makes you smile and feel happy? what is happiness to you? (via PDFIN)

“When someone gives me money to buy candy or food.”

What are you scared of? (via Ipowermaral)

“Snakes! I’m afraid of getting bitten by them.”

Can you tell us about your best/worst memory? (via Ipowermaral)

“My bday is May 14 and it was great and fun. We went out with my friends while it was raining, and we were playing out in the rain.”

When asked what they wanted to be when they grew up, the children answered “teacher” (“so I can make other children smart”) and “doctor” (“so I can help other people more”). When the session concluded, reese015 reported that “it was difficult for [Sofie] to imagine that these questions came from people from all over the world, who are interested in her way of life.”

This wasn’t the first time that the Reddit community posed questions to children. In 2012, a redditor’s 4-year-old daughter provided the AMA community with similarly adorable thoughts.
