Social Media Handle/Username: ChubbyBat

Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Well, I’m 32 years old and I live in Massachusetts. To be honest I never thought I’d make it this far.

What Inspires You Every day? : My son. My son inspires me to be a better person, and his existence pushes me to work hard and secure a good life for us. I was poor growing up, and I don’t want the same for him.

What is some words of wisdom you live by?: You can’t always be the best, but you can always do your best.

What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life is to finish school- I’m majoring in psychology specializing in addiction. I lost my brother to a heroin overdose in 2015, and I need to help others because I feel like I failed my brother. Wherever he is, I hope he’s proud of me.

How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic has been stressful. I have unusually high anxiety anyway, but this sure has cranked it up to 11. On the other hand- when Massachusetts was shut down I got to watch my son take his first steps. For that I am thankful.

What is a message you would like to give others? : You never know what someone is going through so treat people with kindness. being nice is free.

What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: Going back to my first answer. I never thought I’d make it to 32. Hell, I didn’t think i’d make it to 22. Keep going, it truly does get better- I promise.
