Favourite “at work” memory | A customer came in and was treating me pretty poorly, but I could tell it had nothing to do with me or my service, she was simply having what seemed to be a terrible day. So I tried my hardest to give her a reason to smile. She looked up at me and said, “thank you for being the kind of person I needed today” and she gave me the warmest hug.

What do you collect? Deadpool comics!
Favourite thing about your city? My favourite thing about Toronto is the sense of pride that residents have. It’s that “I’m from the greatest city in the world” mentality that I admire from Torontonians, and it gives us all a sense of family and community not many cities have.
