- What is your favorite childhood memory? Going with my grandmother (Mother’s mother) to Florence, SC every summer as a small child and visiting relatives who owned a large plantation home with live oaks branches reaching all the way to the ground. I churned butter, fed chickens, collected eggs and climbed trees.
- What would you sing at Karaoke night? I would probably consider lots of songs from the list and decided not to sing.
- What is the most interesting place you’ve visited? I have traveled to many countries in Europe. The people are pretty much the same in Germany, France, Spain, England, Ireland, and other countries in Europe. But the people of Haiti…they’re different. They don’t have the things we take for granted. They don’t have water flowing in their homes and the water they walk to get isn’t pure. They have small homes in very poor condition with no air conditioning. They walk everywhere because they don’t have even one car per family unlike most of us who have several. But that’s not how the people of Haiti are different. The people of Haiti are truly thankful for what they have. They are always smiling when you say hello and when they worship, they aren’t looking at their watches in a hurry to finish. The people of Haiti stole my heart like no other people anywhere I have been. They need help and it is a privilege to give even a little of my time to do that.
Here is what Louise said she loves most about being a part of the Kidz Community team:
“I love being with kids of all ages and watching them grow both physically and spiritually.”
Thank you Louise for all the energy and warmth you bring to the team!
