What Else She Said

"By far the most rewarding is seeing a smile on people's face and their thankfulness for my attention for what I'm doing for just being there. Just knowing that I've made a difference to them inside, that I've touched them."

"But feeling good about what I'm doing for people as individuals makes me satisfied about what I've done overall. It makes me feel that I've been very successful on some level to people, even though maybe I did not accomplish this huge ideal I set for myself a long time ago."
