Most embarrassing thing about me
I talk to animals even when nobody else is around. I’m hoping one day they will answer me back.
Nobody knows about me
When I was a dancer, I broke my toes so many times that now they are weird looking.
Managing my mental health and still being alive.

Knowing I can have a positive impact on someone’s life, and I love how varied the work is.
