The people! By far – Everyone is just great! Very polite, warm, and welcoming. I saw this when I first interviewed when some of the agents offered me a glass of water or a more comfortable seating arrangement. They are very considerate and accommodating :)

What you like to do in your spare time (family, hobbies, etc…)?
Family for sure. Most of my family is in Florida so we’re all very close and keep in touch often. I’m also a PC Gamer, where many of my friends are from different countries so we all meet up and chat online as well as with headsets. I’m a heavy reader and ask the tough questions too – the entirety of our reality is really fascinating to me so for the most part, i’m into everything pertaining to anything.

One weird fact about me is:
I’m an introvert, and I guess, many consider that weird. I also have a wide interest base of knowledge where discussions and conversations can take interesting, unusual, and unique turns. Ask me a question and I’ll show you how far I can take it.
