Q: What is something you like to do in your leisure time?

A: Hmmmm… I like to do a lot of things, but most of all I love being around children.  Sometimes my old boss at will call me and ask me if I can cover a shift or two at the day camp.  I love it; sometimes I do it for free.  I also like to spend time with my sister.  She’s getting to that age where it is possible for her to be influenced by the wrong crowd.  I just love to be around her, and to give her sisterly advice.

Q: How long have you been playing sports?

A: I don’t have a favorite midnight snack.  My snacking ranges from cookies and chips to fruit.

Q: What is your favorite class here at Trinity?
