I went to Indiana as a Buddy Ambassador for training. I practiced really hard for public speaking. The next thing is I went to the Blue-Gold All-Star Basketball Games in Delaware and I did some public speaking with my man, Tom Waite, on the main gym floor in front of thousands of people, and we introduced Senator Carper. We both talked about Best Buddies at half time.
I also did some more public speaking with my Citizens buddy, Brian King. We have been friends for a long time. We were matched in 2011. I really enjoy being a Buddy Ambassador; it feels great to be part of it.
Friends are very important because it is so much fun talking and networking at the same time.
Also, as for me, I have been working at Best Buddies Delaware for eight years. Wow, that is a very long time. I love being in this organization. I really enjoy working with different people with different companies and telling them about Best Buddies and why it is important to me and why they should become involved.
I like making coffee for everyone in the morning to get their brain working to make them smart. This is just one of the new skills that I have learned since we moved our office. After the coffee, I ask people if I can help them.
