Welcome to why we work with your hostin Brian Vig, as he speas to people like you from all over the world, as wetogether, ndive deeper into our motivations struggles, joys andseemingly misstep warnings and advice, which will be an encouragement to usall and to get a get going and keep on workingworking tibs good, now heresyour hous to why we were leaningn. Driningi am IV, and this is why weworking- and I have the wonderful pleasure and O'm speaking to my cousin,Andrea Chism, goodgood evening, young lady. Now I am very happy that you've agreedto do this interview and I'm also glad because you're, a recent high schoolgraduate Sharan Graduated Twenty Tim, congratulations, which wasn't very longago. You guys had your Prom. I believe you juys had to do. We did a littleprown in my own house. Just 'cause ous got cancelled, so we did a littlesomething something for just me and a group of friends. And you could you tell us a little bitabout yourself and a little bit. I mean again. I appreciate you coming onbecause you're the first person who's as young as you are, so your workexperience will be limited, but I think Um, you add a different aspect ofdifferent value to this, because we have a perspective from someone who'syounger who's thinking about what they want to do in their future. So can youtell us a little bit about yourself and in terms of work, what was your firstjob I started working I'll say I was twelveand I babysit my brother 'cause, my mom was working, so Bavis babysitting waskind of my start to getting money, and then I think, a year after that I, whenmom started playing hockey. I did the time for playing hockey and I got moneyfrom that. So that was a couple of years. I was like thirteen fourteen andmy actual major insistint paying was at Lain sdrugs. When I turned sixteen and I've been there since did you haveso when you babysit your brother? Was that brought upon you? Were youasked to do it or did you say hey? Do you guys need a break I'll, be happy tolieve Osi a because when no one I we got off school at the same time so andmom was still working so mom was like? Oh, can you stay home like? Are you O Kto be alone just for Li e half an hour hour just until I get home ecause shegot home around like thirty thirty four and we got home around two thirty. So Iwas asked it wasn't. I couldn't really stay. No, because we were kind o wewere home, but it it was not like. Oh I'll babysit in'cause. You guys need a break. Wasn't at. Was She paying you? Well, she didn't pay me like a cash. She paidme more with like food, Pi Fid me a phone Sha Meo. I don't have the wayabout paying for it, so those Typo gips not like cold hard cash. So doing thehockey was probably where you got cold hard cash. I got my fir when I starteddoing hockey. That was like. I had cash in my hands first time and then once Istarted doing that, I culdn't have got into more babysitting like over thesummer I babysit my brother's friends for, like a bunch of kids, there's thre,four of them. U Dog and cats, so I got like- and I did that for the wholesummer straight, so I did that so that's KINDOF, like between the hockeyand the babysitting. That's when I...

...started making my whole ton Y pr whowas the connection for hockey. IEEPMY MOM met a woman and it justKinda. Monkin of s kind, O led me guided me to go there and then a girl.Ask Me if you're free, try it out and then I just kept going from there andthen one person saw me and was like. I want her to be on my team, so I haveabout three hockey teams that want that. I do every single year full time andthen I just have random little teams. So what is it your job? You do when youdo that? Are you still doing that? I am still doing that o. What do you do? UmO, I just do the time I started. I cound. I count the goals I put thepenalties up and that I also get to write it on the timesheip that we haveto give to the rats and then they put it in the system hi. So for anyone thatdoesn't is not familiar with hockey. That would be just like any other sportwhere you have a clock, so you're displaying thenumbers in the time and penalties and all that sort of- and I did that when I was younger too,and it was great fun. Do you remember when you first started like whenthey're like o o e time and okay? I Liv with my Da- and I remember I was sonervous 'cause, I'm like I don't want to mess up. So I never left my fingeroff of the Staron Osell fo UN just to be ready at all times. I know, but thenyou're you're getting to be a PROAN, I'm ily casual. Now I'm gonaget up stay,walk around and say: Oh is a stop, don't care, I'm on my phone. Sometimes it's a really good. It's a really goodfun paying job I like being there. Is there other things you can do with likehockey or any other sport to do with time and clock and like did you everthink about refereing or getting out there on the ice yourself want beey hockey, just 'cause, I'm agood skater MHM, but I did look into just goingtobecause I was always a Hacki in in school, but with hockey nut we have thenormal season and then we have playoffs and then, during the summer I've beenable to do stuff over the summer too. So it Kun. Is it all year round thingit ends, and so in you went into babysitting aswell, and how did you get your job in Lawton's? LAWTON is a drugstoremedicine store? Yeah mom worked next door to it in the longterm care facility, and I was trying to get a job, and so I was just gont. Ididn't want to really do fast food. It just didn't seem, like my t, PEP ofteep,so my al just go to Latins, because I know mom work there and mom thought itwas nice and I went to apply to the one closer to me Ansackwell, but theydidn't get back to me. So I'm like mom, do want to just give my rod. Take myresume down 'cause. I was in school Bu. She took it down for me and thensomehow I originally applied for like front store like cashier and thensomehow someone else got a hold of my resume and now I'm in t e host office. What was so even with hockey? What wasthey asked you to do it, but were you starting to get a desire tohave more money? What was what was your motivation to be actually wori money? Ithink once I started getting it. I was around my school like when I started athigh school. We had like Tim Hortons and there were subway and sobies and Icould never really buy anything 'cause. I never had money on me so then, when Istarted seeing. Oh I have money. No, I can just go get this. It started likeOh, I can go actually buy things and I didn't have to rely on mom and dadasking for money. I could buy my own clothes if mom didn't want to byit. Shewas too expensive or stuff like that. It was just easier to have my own stepconstantly asking for my parents for money. So have you also? What is your idea of money and how doyou m manage your money? Um manage my money, I'm the type ofperson where, if I don't really need it,...

I don't buy it. I'm really, I'm prettygood on myself when it comes to that. The biggest thing that I lurge on, Iguess is: I buy a lot of food, but other than that I try to maintain'cause. I know I have to pay for a lot of things in the future. So might aswell start now- and I have my parents always told me when I was younger inorder to have a good life, you need a foundation and thats by working hard,and you need to have money so not to get out of the age you're in ingraduating from high school. But what is your? Not Not necessarily your goalfor your job, but your outlook of the future in what you need to do with themoney that you have so well. I can getting you correctly Um themoney that I'm saving right now I have to pay for university for school, whichis going into radiology MHM and that's Kindof, what I'm going into gettinginto so yeah. I don't want to get too far ahead of what what you're going to do, but so youjust graduated from high school. How was your experience now from what youcan remember back into Middle School and Elementary School and justgraduating? Now, you're inbetween, you haven't starte a university Um. How was this experience of high schoolin terms and even thinking about how you were educated and how the schoolsystem has prepared you to work in a career for the rest of your life? Ithink schools prepared me in the way you ou D wake up and you go somewherewhere you don't want to do and do what you want to do. Li E, I L as much as Ilove school, I'm going to miss it and you wake up. You do the same thing andit prepares you oryou may not want to do it, but you have to do it and it'llget you somewhere in life, but that's a I mi Welso have so. Is it taught you discipline, soyou're you're acknowledging it's teaching you there a system to life yeah, definitely disciplined like somepeople. I've heard people say like we may not need to all the things we learnin school. We may not need it in life. I go that's true, but that's what it'steaching us. You may not have to learn all these things, but that's what lifeis you gotta? Just you may not have to have all these things, but gotto do iteventually in in your school you, you know, sack for high school you've met and seen lots of peopleother students. Would you say your perspective of life of you know,valuing money and planning for your future is. Is the theme that's sharedby other students as well, or do you see a big variation, big differencebetween students, attitudes towards the future? With my friends, it's Kinda,half and half like some of my friends are on the same. They know what theyneed to do to get to some place, but other parts other people that I talk toare like. I just need to go here just to graduate and then I'm done like Idon't want to be here. So it's a really big. It's a really big mix of matchesbetween the two, like, I see a lot of people. I need to do this this this andthis to get where I need to do and they're excited to go in the future andthere's other people who skip classes whor, just they're, just just waitingfor it to be over and then they, then they can start for life. Then they canwork hard. So I guess it kind of makes a match. I see a little bit do what doyou think about t e, the latter half, where they're just waiting to get theirlife started? Do you think that they're not necessarily wrong, but are theygoing to be able to kick it on and start their life if they haven't beenworking?...

I think NE difficulty thellbe it'll bea lot harder for them or like harder than some people who hadstarted working. who Ar tried to work who are continuing to work to continuea good life. It might be a little harder Tham to get the jump in themotivation considering they didn't have the motivation ads like child teenager.So how do they expect to get that motivation as soon as you're done highschool, like Bama Adult Motivation, work? I think it's theynee. I thinksome people need to realize it needs t starts somewhere and it's not happensso quickly, like you have to work. You just have to have he mentality goingthrought your whole middle school high school even sometimes elementary to beright on us, but with the these people like so, ifsomeone's older and we're trying to talk to people that are younger and say,okay, yeah, you need your motivation y. You know you need to look in the future.Do you find that that, from an older person's perspective, it's usuallyfalling on deaf years at t the latter half of the students Wyou just saidthey probably wouldn't listen and here'? Do you know if there's a reason whythat like are we wasting our breath by suggesting starting earlier and findinga motivation? I think it's harder to talk to kids,who don't have the motivation that some others do considering someone's olderand it kind of looks more like you're badgering them. It's Kindo like ont,like what do you know, even though you are older and you do have moreexperience in life like what do you know? Like you don't know my life, youdon't know my business and that's just kind of thei mentality throughout life,so I it sometimes could be a little challenging. I don't say it's a wasteof time 'cause. I know at some point th there could be a breakthrough and theycould like click like he was right or she was right in the end, but it justit may be a little more difficult in talking to some other people. Do youever take it upon yourself? If you maybe more so a friend, but youwouldn't, you would want to say that they're a slacker, but do you ever talkto people that you see? That may not be that motivated that your own, I one ofmy best friends, sometimes gets in those nodes like she's, a smart, smartperson, but sometimes molike. Her motivation is slimmer than or weaken,sometimes spend on the month, and so with that I try to Um just try to like. Maybe not ask Oh,what do you do like? Did you do the homework? Did you do this and this ndthis 'cause that just adds more pressure Bo? I just kindo give herspace. Let her do it. If she wants to come to me, ask how to do things thatI'm for sure they are, but I don't try to push anything on it because I'vedone it before and it turned ugly. What about for you? Do you have maybesh your best friend or another friend? They see that you're not motivated at aparticular day or over particular topic, and that you need encouragement, yeah,definitely MHMCAUSE Througho High School I've always been I've nevermissed a day of school. I'. I've always tried to keep up perfect tendants tokeep my grades up. So whenever I'm feeling like about things, they notice reallyquickly. So then they're more they're better at talking to me like Hey,what's going on like 'cause, I've they're not used toit so they're like how can I help they go really really quickly versus? When Isee one of my friends, I kind o just slow it down, maybe give some time tothink about everything, but definitely when I'm in that funk or somethingthey're normally right there is there a commonality between you who seemsmotivated and some of your friends who may not be as motivated. Is there acommon theme that says that in a slumpish sort of day that ththesame reasons the same topics? Do you know what kind of gets you guys in aRut sometimes M with my friends? It could be family life, it could berelationships could be just someone...

...said something online and they didn'tlike it Oy they just wroke up on the wrong side of the bet. That's Kindo, where my friends are.What with me, I'm in a funk. It's normally like my Fuk's Kinda, like if I'm just tiredor if I'm not under a lot of stress with work. I have a lot of things hat.I don't take the time to like think about it. Then I get a littleoverwhelmed, but normally it's Aro that for me, but I get with all my friends.I get the family friends relationships. Just work is stressing the road tryingto balance things just having a bad day. It's Kinda, it'snever always the same, but it's one of those few like it's, never just ranom.You mentioned social media and anyone. That's my age or older, maybe a littleyounger. We did not grow up with the same sort of influence. Social mediahas or does it have on you, I'm not sure it is my question how howinfluential is the Internet and Social Media Apps allthe various ones? On your way of thinking and how you spend your day and'cause, you said that you know one of your friends or you. You could have abad day, because someone said something about you online. I mean thinking aboutit som for years. I guess people who have been more in the news would haveexperienced that if it was a newspaper or something like that, but now it canhappen to anyone so quickly, howhow much of impact as social media play onyour thinking and your life Um, I'm on it like twentyfour seven, like t I with my age group, that's Kindo all we know I'm probablymore on the on it a lot more than others, but withmy thinking I'm just Kinda like I see people post and there's a lot of bigopinions and sometimes like Yah. That makes a lot of sense and other timeslike. Why do you need to share that like like there's some? My thing is:There's some things that can be said in a right way and it's how you say thingsand social media just really twist it, because if you're reading it it's like,you can put y. u can twist and turn the tones. So I think when it comes toreading things online with news or just people just talking B, you could put itin any perspective. So it's how you word it. I think is what impacts peoplethe most like canpoint. I just one word to tragger anbody. Do you have in yourmind, like a wall, a barrier to say um like to defend yourself, to know thatyou know to protect yourself? So it's not going to affect you so much if, ifsomeod on, say something off the cuff or even if they're saying something thetruth that you don't like. Do you have some I like if someone said something, forexample like truthful, like I have a big mouth? That's that's fair! That's afair, that's a fair statement and I can't I always try. I can't get upsetat something. That's true, especially when it's about me when I know thatit's true, I know I can't really deny it because I know it's there, but ifit's something like something that I don't expect or like something, but myappearance, I'm Kindo dustlike, do they really know me like 'cause Momost people who have said something they've kind of just seen me onSocialmedia, but they they don't know who I am as a person. So I do try tojust not look at it Um. I has gotten to me like couple F timesas it should as as everybody, but I do have a good walt a I'm like. I know,there's a bunch of people that love me and spore me W, for who I am and what Ilook like sid that one person can't change everyone else's opinion. I Iliked once I saw a cartoon like...

...one that you would see, maybe in onlinebut in AE newspaper and it showed some person just a chararture of a person at hiscomputer in a bubble was up there and he was telling therewas his wife or something h said: honey come to bed and he s. He replied back.No, someone, there's no honey! There's someone wrong on the Internet right so just remember, there's so many,and I just find that good. Like 'cause, you can get in debates and Um. You knowback and forth about what someone's view is and there's always going to besomeone wrong on the Internet. You would never go to bed if you felt youhad to defend yourself against the world. I try to not comment. If I see acommonits like I just try t not 'cause, I know their opinion's not going tochange, I'm going to say my truth, but they'renot they might not pay attention to me and then they'll just continue. So it'sjust a just, don't answer and then they'll move onso in high school. How was your high school school experience and then intograduation? And what did you think about your job prospects and what youwanted to do? Um, I loved my high school experience.It was a good. I had a good group of friends going throughout my jobs Um. Ithink once like grade nine Kinda ended. I kind O had my mind set on what Iwanted to do. I did a lot of research during that process. 'CAUSE GRAT KNIGHTA lot of projects that we had to do was what o you? What are your career?What's your career, it's like what are you going to do to get to those classesthat you need to do your life, so we had to do a lot of reserch on it andthe more research I did on what I wanted to do, the more I got excitedabout it and the more I continued to want to learn about it. So I think bythe endter gre night. I just did that and then once we got to pick ourclasses in grade nine forgrade ten and I just had I G- I was able to pick. Iknow I need this cost this oss in this cost in order to get to thy class toget to the university. I want to go to get to that job. So with that, I had alot of great guidance, counselors and information that I could to continue to show what classes I needed and then myextracurriculars, like counsel, that helped me with my leadership, to get meactually motivated to do the things I wanted to do too and then, but the guncounsors helped me out of life. What what did you decide? Anen that youwanted to Bi Gointo, take Raology at Dalhosi, xray, technozy, technician, techninyeah. So what I mean from grade mind. Is there any reason why you chose thisPash? I broke my leg the summer going intogray night and when I went to the hospital I seen this girl. She was liketwenty years old weelay playing soccer, mind you, Oh yeah, I was playing soccer.I broke my like a girl fell on me. She broke my leg. She broke my Tibia and myfhibula big Brek Um, and then I seen the girl A. I asked her. I'm like, Idon't know why I asked I think I was just gotta Gotofrom sleeping and I'mlike how old are you and I think she said twenty two an I and I justwatching her- do all the things that looked like so interesting. Consideringshe knew what butns there was a lot of a big desk of just buttons and Knobs toplay around with and she's like lift this lit. That and I'm like this looksso interesting and then I after I got out of the hospital, and I went to myhouse- I googled it and I'm just like I kept on researching it mom and I did alittle researching n I'm just like. I want to learn more about it and then,when I gone to school we are able to have that project and I got til reallydive into it and it just. I knew I...

...always wanted to do something medical,but I'm not really good. At like seeing a lot of blood blood like I couldn't cut open a stomachthat'd be awful, but I knew I want to do something that way and I being ablewith xray technology. I could do ultrasounders like cat scaned, likethere's a big wide range of what I could do so I'm like well I'm going totry that 'cause. That's something I've been interested in and want to do, butI don't have to see all the goring, so it was good. You broke your leg, yeah Um, I mean I was in a cast for thewhole summer, but looking back at it, I now know what I want to do n. So Gos did. Are you still playing soccer? Isure am. Are you going to try out for which? What school did you decide to goto which I think of Tahousa, university and Afaccotia? Are you gon to go for thesoccer team? No, that is were like really really good people and I'm notthat really good. I'm like mediocre good. So I play on like a senior women's team,so I play on a League but Um, I'm not playing with the school the school. Youhave to get like not only yo gate to try out, but a lot of people getsponsored from watching people at high school soccer and there was n my highschool soccer. Caree was not the best. We had a broken leg for er over bout,like rode for a season, no two seasons, whether you gowell there'sonly three season. I junt goo soccer, so it'd be hard to do. You have an interest in it or youyou're Dumbono. I like planing soccer with the people I play with now. I Idon't think I'd be able to play at that type of level right now, just 'causethe girls who play there have played and were on like high level teams fromlike twelve years old tokeep keep going. So I don't think I think about it. I'dlove to go to games I'll, be the biggest fan ever, but I h like where Iam when it comes to my senior womens Andre. I asked you about this beforeand I I think it's comparing yourself to me who went tosaprahigh school. My mind was surely not as clear as yours and determinedand focused, and I asked permission of this before cn. Can you say a littlebit about yourself where you actually came from and how you come to be whereyou are now yeah, so I was born in Gluangjo, China and fifteen months oldI was adopted with my mom and debt. I came to Canada and started my life. It's and you say it so easily Um, but anyone cal appreciate I I think Isaw something yesterday about a family, doing something and u they had an adopted child and they did many things for their their children. And I it was it's like heartwarming to tohear something like tha and even the person in the show which I didn't evenknow the profit. I don't know if you' e ever seen. This show the profit, but hegoes around helping people in their businesses, and I didn't know that hewas also adopted himself. Wum, Marcus, something- and I like listening to you for the last Umwhole hour. Sorry to take your time and like how clear you are and you're not, I mean there's manythings that people can use as an excuse in their life to you know their crutch.If you I know you were on crutches for...

...a long time and you probably don't likethem, but in none of that, where you throwing in, I can't do this. I meanI'm not very impressed with you, wouldn't be willing to try out for thedohous girl, socer team, because I was not a good football player, but I triedToferkadia and tried out and made the team, and it I mean like watch themovie rudy like if you ever have a desire, but if you really just don'twant to, then that's a whole different cup of tea, but you're not using that as an excuseand you're living the life that you seemingly want to live. MTHAT may notbe perfect, but you have this motivation. Can you share your thought process in in how you think about being from Chinabeing adopted and then having this kind of different lease on life yeah? Ieverything that I do in G. Looking back like all the accomplishes, I have it'sKindo like I'm so grateful being here. Like I always say I could be anywherein the world. Considering I could have stayed in China. I could have been inENGLISD. Like word knows where I could end up. So just it makes me feel reallythankful that I ended up here, because I think I wouldn't have gone. Iwouldn't be, who I am. I would have gotino opportunities without the pushof my parents, like they, the structure and the way that they raised me wasamazingthat. I wount. I won't take it back for a heart feat like a lot ofpeople Um, they ask like they've, said you're. Do you know yourbirth mom or like they've, called my mom, like your adoptive mother and thefirst time I heard that I'm like I've, never heard that 'cause I've alwaysjust liked my mom's, my mom I've. Never, I would never think of anything elselike that, and I think with that, the mentality of just knowing there's Elike,even though I have my birth mother there's my mother. So it's likesomething that I think I've taught 'cause. I do have adopted friends andthey they kind of see differently than I do it's just like. I I like to do all thethings that I do and I'm proud of the things th. I do because I know in likemy own weird way: it's like I'm doing this to try o show my parents howgrateful and thankful that I am that they did that process, because withoutthem I wouldn't have gotten there. I think you have a pretty goodperspective and you know everyone has hard things in life, but you seem to be handling this partrather well, so Pudos to you on that. What what is the most difficult for?You could be your job that you have at Lawton's. What is it you know recentGrad, what is most difficult in your life now in terms of work or justgetting intoit, I think trying to balance now, 'caus everything's online,I think, trying to balance work and school now, because I know my my boss,like what's on once school became online, I was at work every single dayand that's been a routine sense march. I think that's been a little difficulttime for my boss, knowing that I won't be there all the time and I'll just be there like on mynormal weekends. I think that's going to be the biggest adjastment in thebiggest stress that I'm having just like how can I still make like goodamount of money to pay for the things I do, but still keep on top of my grades.So Im try to balance that and y bosses. My boss is doing really well Woit,keeping giving me flexible hours throughout school mhm, so she's been areal, a good person to held there, but thenhaving like again my parents they've been able to help me with not onlypaying for half my cuition but Um,...

...just being a good supportmental support.Asking me every Sonday how my work, how my day at work was doing like Um if gowas stressful, like let's talk about it or like, like helping me to figure outall my classes, get my schedule get my things going, so my computer, that my mom recentlybought me n Incudos to your parents, because they also took care of me for aperiod of time and still are taking care of me in some way. Another. What? What issomething that you like about the work that you do or you know what is thegreatest joy you get out of doing what you do so I like I, like Um, the customer service. I like meetingNew People like talking to people they'rem. Ninety five percent of themare very pleasant. There's a weird Fivi like yeah, but I love being aroundpeople Um, the people that I work in Bedford, so the people there are justthey're, so they're, really nice and the coworkers. I have they're, reallynice, really a multiculltura. I have a lot of Um middle eastens. I have coubleagents like it's not here in Sal, there's a lot more black or white. I guess you want to sayso. It's really nice to have a big wide community over there. That's a interesting topic ofmulticulturalism and diversity. You live in a non Asian home, but you'refrom Asia, and you work in how do you find you're treated on a general basis oreven more specifically how? How difficult or easy is this for you? Sometimes I forget that omasion quitehonest m, just 'cause, a lot of my friends are white. My familyis Whi, I'mlike it's, not that I don't I'm not proud of being agen. It just sometimeslist my mind. So when I'm at work- and sometimes people are like- where areyou from I'm Kinda like how do they know that I'm not from here just 'cause,I sometimes forget my physcal Parenc, but Um Al. The good nomost people askare pretty nice asking like. Are you from Chinana like? Where are you fromlike? Where in Thina are you from like there's, no crazy, crazy comments? I'vehad o there'sthere's with that question. where, where are you from, I think,there's kind of a m dicot there's two things that go on there. There are somepeople as ignorant too, and they may mean it not necessarily in a good waylike where are you from right, you're not from here, but I think I've evenasked people like curiously, because if you know I guess, even if we'd say indigenouspeople, if yosaw indigenous person, you would say oh well, they're from Canada,probably most likely, but any o besides, that would be you know. Where are youfrom you might not, as you said, get white people who would say, but reallywe should probably ask more white people. Where are you from like w? Yousay here where grandparents from because mine were for England andFrance, and so that we should be asking those questions more often like what isyour hi? What is your family history? Maybe come up with a better questionbut yeah, I think, there's a an ignorance for some people. Where areyou from, but there's also other people like? Oh well, you know likely your oryour parents have only been here for a generation or so where were they priorto them? So I, I think, not generally speaking to people who theysee on the street. So there's a diconomy between that. How Andrea haswork brought you through life, in your from your first babysitting to somehockey to Lawton Ho? How is it assistat you and helped you grow immature grow as I can. Wake up at seven am andnot complain, that's more of a joke Um,...

...but I think I'm just more disciplined.I can I'm able to a lot of my friends that I have they're just like. How canyou work so much I'm just like we have to do it at some point, and I just Ihave sense working so starting so young and like once I did hockey. I was atevery single game every single weekend from Friday to Sunday I wanted to go. Iwanted to do it, so I think just s the desire in the motivation of wanting todo something did not only help myself but maybe to see I'm a very big peopleperson. I love seeing people like meeting New People, so I think thedesire wanting the money being with other people meeting. Other people wasjust it. Kinda made my transition to work at Lonn a lot easier Um. I thinkI'm more mcn, not mture, but mature, then someothers. I guess I think I have a good balance between both. Where can people find you if they wantit m you're, onsocial media and I don't want a bunch of people trying tocontact you, but if they wanted to find out, maybe about radiology, maybethere's a you know a younger? U and grade nine thinking about it. They wantto contact you or something. Where could someone easily contact you ormost esy mind that me is on facebook because sorry, my instagram is private,good answer, ver se there's that wall there's that wall that I would ask and inclote is there anything elseyou'd like to say about this? Andrea and Ecause, I have a closing questionfor you closing comment. I had fun, that's goodUm, I'm G and I did to and Um I think anyone listening to this couldbe encouraged to know that there is. There is hope for our future.If there's more people like you Um, why do you work, Andrea and even thinking about even thinkingabout you know, you're going to graduate and you're going to get a jobin radiology, and you never know your job might change. You might open up astomach or something, but why why do you work um? I think wel. I work for the fact of the moneypart, but actually I work because I like being around people with the sameeveryone. I knows that has a job has kind of the same motivation and I lovebeing around people that are different but have the same mindset as me and areable to just come together and like we have the same hesate. We know what weneed to do. I love that environment of we know what we need to get done. Wehave a plan we. This is what we're going to do. I like feeling like thatthat's kind of my personality, I d like knowing exactly what we're going to doso working has really helpd me, not Um, not like show it more, but I was kindo.I was always known as a control freak, so I tried to hide it a little bitgoing into H, junior high hi school, but once I started working, I'm justlike just embrace it and so I's been able to get my leadership goals outthere and become more independent and more Um, yet more independent with UHTAT. That's all I gotperfect it's a great answer. It's a very good answer!So Andre.
