We caught up with new member Rachel2085 and asked a few fun questions. Get to know your new community member and don't forget to say Hello!

EP: Good morning and welcome. Wonderful to have you join us. Let's get started right away. If you could change one thing about your life, what would you change?

Rachel2085: Pleasure to be here. A bit random, but OK. I wish I wasn't so naive and would have realized when people were taking advantage of me... or when people were being abusive towards me. I wish I was more assertive and respected myself enough to stand up for what I believe in and took charge of my life.

EP: Definitely something to think about. If you could meet any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

Rachel2085: I'm amused. I wish I could meet my old self...when I was still with my parents... was loved and protected and didn't know that there are some real evil people in the world... when i was more trusting... had self worth... big dreams and ambitions and was passionate about life...

EP: Wow. If you had the chance where you could do anything you wanted, with money being no object, what would you do?

Rachel2085: Let me think about that one for a second. I always wanted to be a teacher... i love kids... I am great with kids and I am great at teaching...
Sadly... my mom wanted me to be an engineer instead... and I always wanted to make my mom happy... so became an IT Professional... a job i am fairly good at... but have no passion for... and hate wasting every minute i am working in front of a dumb computer, meeting deadlines... working under a controlling boss... having to work even in the weekends... losing my work life balance... and somewhere along the lines... losing a sense of who i am... and what my original dreams were...

EP: Very well. It's been a real treat to chat with you today. Well, that concludes our up close and personal interview with Rachel2085 . Stay tuned readers, for our next New Member Interview.
