My teammates are already great! They can just be themselves, and that's fine.

When I'm stressed, you might notice me…

Furrowing my brow and not talking a lot.

Just let me be for the meantime, I will figure things out on my own, eventually. Or not.

Most fulfilling project I've worked on

Helping wrap packages and gifts for my calamity-stricken fellowmen.

I don't know it just does.

My Achilles Heel is…

I get sidetracked sometimes.

Slap my face and bring me to my heel. Pun definitely intended.
