“What do you feel like your gifts are?”
“I feel like I’m good at making people feel comfortable and welcomed. I used to do loans and I was really good at explaining things to people, not talking down to them, because I had a learning disability and I had a hard time in school.”
“What was your disability?”
“Dyslexia. I always had to take untimed tests, and get tutored. I was separated from my peers in a way and that doesn’t feel good.”
“How to you think that affected your development?”
“I think it afforded me the ability to be more compassionate and empathetic. I know it doesn’t feel good when you’re made to feel less than so I go out of my way to make sure people feel good.”
