Emily Bray

1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
My favorite sound is laughter. Laughter ripples through a room creating a joyful atmosphere. While working with the children at Friends of Kids With Cancer, I am reminded that laughter is the best medicine. Their laughter is music to my ears.

2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
I would like to be a polyglot, a person who has the ability to speak several languages. The ability to communicate on a global scale would be an amazing talent. Conversing with people of various cultures would allow me to help others communicate and work together.

3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
My best habit is that I strive to be a life-long learner. I am constantly working to educate myself by watching, listening, asking, reading, or by trying new things. I welcome each day opening my mind to accept new challenges.

4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
Yes, I make mistakes. Making mistakes allows me the opportunity to evaluate and improve my efforts. I try to look at mistakes as a positive experience the same way I try to improve other life skills. Mistakes are opportunities; we must recognize them as such.

5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
My favorite food is my obasans (obasan is the title we gave my Japanese grandmother) special recipe for pot stickers. They are full of flavor and spices handed over from tradition. When by obasan makes pot stickers the spices fly, the sauces are blended, and pure culinary magic takes place.
