Getting to know you…

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you!

Name: Ryan

Shop, Donate or Volunteer?

I volunteer.

And I donate.

And I shop!

How long have you been volunteering with Philly AIDS Thrift? Since spring 2007, around May.

What’s your favorite thing you bought here?

I think I have bought too many things to remember what I bought here. But I do know that a lof of the things I have I got from here and I get a lot of things from here, use them, then donate back here, and I’ll buy them again and then I’ll donate them again, and then I’ll buy them again. But I forgot what they were, but I have a lot.

What keeps you coming back to our store?

The supervision here…The supervision is really empowering. The supervisor and the supervision and the staff here make me want to keep coming back again and again.

So you would say it’s above par. Uh-huh!

Wha- But it’s very welcoming and I feel very welcome to come here and be free! I like these interviews!

What’s the #1 top played song on your iPod? Cardigans, Live and Learn.

What’s your favorite type of tree? Christmas

Do you consider yourself much of a daredevil?

Absolutely, in fact, I consider myself the most daredevil of all the volunteers, here. I don’t want to brag, though.

No, you’re very humble. Who’s your favorite superhero?

Wait, hold on. About the daredevil thing, I have a scooter. Continue. And I smoke cigarettes…But I’m quitting…on Monday.

Who’s your favorite superhero? The Rocketeer.

If you could have a full scholarship to any university, what would you choose to study? Business.
