Before I start these, I must admit, I “borrowed” the FAQs directly from my brother’s blog (with my own answers, of course). Hey . . why reinvent the wheel? All of my blogs are original!
Where are you from?
The R-I-C baby! Ha ha ha!!! In college, I had a bunch of friends from Augusta, Georgia, and they referred to it as the A-U-G. So I thought I’d try it. I was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. What’s that? Don’t I still live in Richmond? Yes, but before you go making assumptions, let me help you out. I left at age 17 to go to college, and swore I’d never come back. I came back at age 24 for a 1 year clerkship, and, lo and behold, liked it and ended up staying. So I’ve been out there, seen a few things, and THEN came back (I highly encourage it).
Where’d you go to school?
Any Richmonder knows that this question usually indicates your high school. I graduated from what was then the Governor’s School for Government & International Studies, now called the Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School. I was in the inaugural class (“First to Survive, Class of ___”), yes, when there were no textbooks on the first day of school. It was wild! After that, I went to that wonderful institution in Atlanta, Georgia known as Spelman College. It was the best 4 years I could’ve had in college, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I wrapped up my education at the University of Michigan Law School. What? She’s a lawyer? Maybe. Or maybe I just play one on tv :-).
What do you do?
I work. Hard. It’s fun. The end. I do relationship management for a Fortune 500 financial services company. I manage large relationships with key partners (not individuals, but companies). It’s interesting.
What church do you go to?
Faith & Family Church, where we are “Living by Faith and Building Godly Families.” What, do you really know your church’s motto like that? Yep, it’s like that! I love my church family. We are growing and doing wonderful things, and you should come check us out if you’re in town!
What are some of your favorites?
“I want, by understanding myself, to understand others. I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.” ~Katherine Mansfield
