Meet Patiencevirtue!

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

EP: Greetings and welcome. Wonderful to have you join us. Let's get started right away. If you had the chance where you could do anything you wanted, with money being no object, what would you do?

patiencevirtue: Pleasure to be here. I sure hope people are enjoying this interview. I would ensure the education and intellectual freedom and equality of women all around the world. I truly believe that one of the biggest factors driving much of the fear, ignorance, superstition, and poverty in the world is the lack of education for the poorer members of society, and statistics say that even among the poorest of the poor the women are much more likely to be illiterate and under-educated than the men. As an aspiring intellectual I highly value access to education for all, and as a female I highly value access to education for other females.

EP: Next question. When you are 100 and looking back at your life, what do you want to be able to say?

patiencevirtue: A bit random, but OK. I want to be able to say that I lived peacefully, compassionately, intelligently, and fully. I want to be able to look at my network of family and friends and know that I will be missed. I want to feel at peace with my choices and my actions. I want to know that I did my best to leave the world a better place than it was when I entered it. I hope to be able to still have some years ahead of me at 100, but we'll see.

EP: Intriguing answer. What activity have you always wanted to try, but haven't yet? Why?

patiencevirtue: That's kind of odd, but alright. Writing a children's book. I have written a novel, but I don't yet feel secure enough in my drawing/cartooning skills to write a children's book. I know I could probably get an illustrator, but I am one of those people who likes to do it all myself (I know, a bad habit at times) and I really want to write and illustrate my first children's book on my own (at least the first draft).

EP: Well put! I couldn't have said it better myself. Well, that concludes our up close and personal interview with patiencevirtue . Stay tuned readers, for our next New Member Interview.

Until then, be sure to pay a visit to patiencevirtue's profile today and say Hello!
