Did you find it easy to get along with your peers when you were growing up?
- I’d say it was a mix of yes and no, because of me being an athlete all my life, I could make friends quite easily but when due to my socially awkward personality and struggling between wanting to fit in with the “cool” kids and being myself; sometimes it was harder to get along with peers. I was always the class clown growing up, I could make people laugh at my own expense but after awhile I then learned the difference between someone laughing with me and someone laughing at me & it truly opened my eyes to how some people perceived me.
Would you say you got along with your peers growing up, or were you an outcast?
What makes you laugh?
- When my mom is being silly, my own jokes sometimes (yes I laugh at my own jokes), conversations I have had with certain individuals, live stand up comedy, a group of my friends and me having fun. I like making people laugh, so laughing is my thing, something I have grown to enjoy and enjoy being part of when it isn’t making fun/light of someone but instead when it is fulfilling someones need to have a good day or brightening up the mood or just to show interest in someone and what they are saying that brings you joy. Laughing is good for the soul.
Anything in particular make you laugh? Is it hard to make you laugh, or do you laugh at almost anything?
