Suzi’s Cover Letter:
Dear Sky Watchers,
My friends have always told me that I should do TV, and that weather stuff would be perfect for me. My favorite movie has always been To Die For. I wanted to be Nicole Kidman so bad and do the weather like her. She looked so good and had the best outfits!
I’ve been practicing for years in front of a mirror and pretending to point at stuff that really isn’t there, so my game is strong. In the third grade, I won Best Drawing during Tornado Safety Week. And our local TV weather dude was a judge and said I was so cute. Destiny, I believe it is!
My philosophy with the weather is to always say it will be partly cloudy. Because if the sun shines, bonus! And if it’s kinda cloudy, then I was right!
Warm Hearts and Warm Fronts,
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
