September 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

What do you do for a living?
"I am a surgical assistant for an oral surgeon and I help rip your teeth out in the most comfortable way."

What neighborhood do you live in?
"I'm from upstate. A little town close to Troy."

Where would you go if you could go anywhere?
"Africa. I wanna see a giraffes black tongue. The zoo wouldn't suffice."

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
"More than anything, I love to get lost in books. But when my eyes get tired, Netflix will do."

Where did you go to school? What for?
"I went to Schenectady Community College for the wonderful major of liberal arts."

Are you reading anything currently? What?
"The Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Goosebumps (*giggles*)."

What is your dream?
"My dream is to save someone's life, physically or emotionally. People really mean a lot to me. I treat the CEO and the garbage man exactly the same, with politeness and kindness.

What's the biggest battle you've faced?
"Depression and self-worth."

What do you care about the most?
 "Happiness. This world is out to get you, you have to have the right state of mind to overpower the negative. I try for it everyday."

If you could change anything in the world, what would you change?
"If I could change anything in this world, it would be compassion. There's not enough of it. People forget what it's like to not be as well-endowed as others. It's so easy to make somebody's day with a simple compliment. We all need to fight the good fight, because in the end we only have each other."
