I was a switchboard operator at a hospital. I am blind. I was very poor at retrieving information from the computer that spoke to me so I memorized over 400 numbers. Now once I discontinued working there, those numbers evaporated. I had sequences for cardiac arrest. I had sequences for fires. For multiple areas. Once I stopped working- it has been about 2 or 3 years- they disappeared.

I’m a proud, strong, Native American woman. We are the original people of this land. The British came over. A lot of killings happened. A lot of massacres happened. A lot of Native Americans were taken out. I can already see where our cultures combined- if drama is brought to me and it needs to be dealt with- I will deal with it.
