Tell us about what you do at FBH.
I work as part of a team of people who are responsible for keeping the facilities clean. As for me personally, I’m responsible for vacuuming and wiping switches and door knobs.
What’s your favorite thing about working at FBH?
There are a couple things I like about working at FBH. This job has given me the opportunity to learn how to focus on my work, which I used to have trouble doing. I received a bronze medal for doing such a good job, and it made me feel really proud of my work. I also like that it helps me afford to pay my bills and buy video games.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love using any kind of electronics – cell phones, laptops, video game consoles, you name it. I’ll try any video game once, but my favorites are Star Wars Battlefront, Star Fox, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and sports games like FIFA 19 and NBA 19. I’m also a big fan of McDonald’s. I’m also volunteering with Meals on Wheels, where I help deliver meals to people who aren’t able to leave their homes.
Who do you like to spend time with outside of work?
My family! I have two brothers and two sisters who live with my shared living provider, Ruth. On the weekends, I get to see my mom and my other three brothers and four sisters who live with her.
