If you could invent a gadget what will it be and why?
A gadget that I can put on myself and help me tele-transport in an instant! I love travelling but getting old – so the whole idea of going through security – getting on a plane – waiting in lines – taking a cab – waiting, waiting and more waiting… such a waste of time and energy!
What’s the kindest act you have ever seen done (either to/by you or another)?
Everyone knows I’m a sucker for dogs… so I saw this video a few weeks ago… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_4ZgY5VOa4. Warning: not for the faint hearted.
If you were to start a book club, what book(s) would you recommend? Why/What’s it about?
I don’t have a specific book that I would recommend, but I love reading (or listening – as I’ve started to lately during my commute) books about people’s experiences, growing up in different cultures, narratives, etc… My last 2 books: Tina Fey’s Bossypants and Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir.
What wakes you up in the morning or what motivates you to come to work every day?
Definitely my alarm clock – and it tries really hard to wake me up. To be honest, TeleSign is the best place I’ve EVER worked for. The job is challenging – but in a great way. I love that this is a small enough company that you can get your hands dirty and learn so much. I love that my input makes a difference in the company. I love that my opinions are heard. I love that if I don’t know something – someone is always there to help out. I love that I can walk up to any C management and have a chat. I love that my colleagues are weird but awesome at the same time. And last but not least – I love that I get to go into a meeting while petting one of the visitor dogs on my lap. All of this is what motivates me to be here every day.
If you were a superhero, which one would you be and why? Or better yet, what special super powers would you possess?
I think I would like to have super speed, or the ability to continue doing things while I sleep. That way I can get more things done in a day. Can I also have the ability to add more hours to a day? Oh, oh, oh! And I would love to be able to understand what animals are saying/thinking. I don’t know how that would help anyone, but I think that would still be pretty awesome.
