Day 3: Kim & Amanda
Kim sat next to me typing away on a laptop with piles of paper on the table. At first, I wasn't sure if she might be the person I would meet for the day. She was wearing headphones and had her head down reading. Eventually, she did stop to talk to her friend, Amanda, and that's when we talked.
Kim was there to work on an assignment for med school. "I'm just happy to be here and nearly finished," she told me. She asked what I was working on and I told her about this blog. She laughed. Both Kim and Amanda were waiting for their daughters to get out of ballet class and we talked about dance and particularly tap.
Then Amanda told me about her writing project. "I was on the wrong path for awhile, but through my faith, I've really gained strength." She's writing a book about that experience. Interestingly enough it was something Kim didn't even know. "All I knew was that it was a secret writing project," Kim said. Amanda smiled and shrugged and simply said, "It's about helping women. Women are my true passion."
